Obama, Dolan, Boehner, McConnell and Reid should embrace Jindal’s contraceptive plan to eliminate the HHS Mandate issue and get on with fiscal cliff negotiations.

by Doug Lawrence

OK. Artificial contraception is always morally wrong. So says the Catholic Church and so says the Creator God. Case closed!

Unfortunately, none of that is stopping the U.S. Government from supplying free contraceptives … many of them to be paid for by the Catholic Church … to anyone who wants them.

So … go ahead and make contraceptives cheaply available, over the counter, for anyone of legal age who chooses to use them. The onerous HHS mandate will be eliminated, those who choose to follow God’s law will be able to freely do so … and those who do not … will be free to deal with the (eternal) consequences.

Jindal’s plan is the best we’re likely to see, anytime soon.

Obama, Dolan, Boehner, and McConnell and Reid should jump on this … get it done … and use this compromise as a springboard for successful fiscal cliff negotiations, to come!


  1. Still morally problematic. It makes any Catholic congress member, beginning with Boehner, complicit in making a substance that is always harmful to the user, and potentially lethal to her child, far more easily available. This “compromise” smacks of a political “magical bullet” that is a product of wishful thinking. More like a magic bean, in fact. Even if this “compromise” is accepted and lifts the mandate for now, does anyone think it will end there?

    IMO, this is a “stand your ground” moment, if ever there were one. Refusal to comply (civil disobedience), coupled with vigorous litigation, is the way to go. Legislation and regulation have proven themselves totally inimical to the religious liberty the bishops–currently suffering second-degree burns from the welfare state they encouraged, facilitated and embraced–are now seeking.

  2. Yes, Jindal’s Plan, would work!
    25% of the Nation is Catholic, and The Catholic Church does Not approve of Contraception……so Compromise on the Health Mandate, so that No God fearing Catholic will have to participate in this travesty!
