Anti-Contraception Activists Claim Their Suits Are Last Resort to Undermine Health Care
Lila Rose and others want celibate old catholic farts in dresses to be able to dictate to the supreme court.
The new strategy by anti-choice groups, though, is to try to portray Obamacare advocates as waging a war on women, attempting to turn the war on women frame on its head. “Women will be especially hurt by today’s decision,” said Concerned Women for America president Peggy Nance in an overheated statement. “As we have seen with the contraception mandate, the politicization of so-called women issues by the left leaves the majority of women extremely vulnerable to the exploitation of a few radical groups that exert much political influence in Congress and the White House.”
Meanwhile, Jon O’Brien, president of Catholics for Choice, which supports the contraception mandate, said the group was pleased with the Supreme Court decision, but “we are also aware, however, that the battle to ensure that individuals can make conscience-based decisions about their healthcare is not over. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has made clear that it will stop at nothing to block the ability of women and families to access contraception, even if it means derailing policies and programs that provide healthcare to those in need. CFC will continue to speak for the millions of Catholics whose views are not represented by the bishops, and who support increased access to comprehensive reproductive healthcare for all women and men as a matter of social justice and sound public policy.”
UPDATE: Lila Rose, producer of the deceptive anti-Planned Parenthood videos, issues a statement with some truly dubious word choices and arguments:
Today, the Supreme Court has upheld nothing more than a Ponzi scheme to expand the abortion business. If this legislation is not overturned by the next administration, Obamacare’s socialist-style diktats will be used, not to provide better or more affordable health care, but to expand Planned Parenthood’s abortion empire across the backs of American taxpayers and people of conscience - and at the expense of our religious freedoms.
