Deroy Murdock: Obama's war on poor nuns is an economic injustice
"The Little Sisters do their work for free," says Daniel Blomberg, legal counsel at the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, which represents these nuns. "They are not paid salaries," Blomberg adds. "Each Little Sister takes a vow of poverty. They don't personally own anything."
Blomberg also notes that Obamacare lets HIV medication prices increase. "There are no restrictions on co-pays for HIV drugs. Indeed, plans do not have to cover them. But contraceptives must be covered and totally free," Blomberg says. "You can die under the Affordable Care Act because you cannot afford your HIV medications, but birth control has to be gratis."
"Women at all income levels use the pill," says Dr. Lawrence B. Finer, Ph.D., Director of Domestic Research at the Guttmacher Institute. "But pill use is more common among higher-income women than among lower-income women." Birth control pills are the most popular female contraceptive.
Obama should unhand the Little Sisters of the Poor so they can spread their love. Meanwhile, women should acquire contraceptives just as Obama expects men to obtain condoms — with their own money.
