Government Interference with Religion

I've been following all the media reports on the president's directive that religious institutions, regardless of their precepts, must provide coverage for contraception.

In my opinion, this coverage is very misleading.  Actually, the president demands coverage for abortion, contraception and sterilization.  Most reports omit abortion and sterilization and only mention birth control. 

I'm not an expert on the constitution, but somehow it seems to me that the government is intruding on the laws of Catholics and any other religion that considers abortion wrong.  If women feel that they really must have an abortion, let them pay for it themselves, or go to Planned Parenthood who will gladly perform the service.

I agree with you. The President is out of bounds on this one too.

The nerve. I always think nothing he can do will surprise me. And then he does something else outrageous! Gah!
