I am Libertarian and find it surprising that some one who leans Libertarian would support a federal control of healthcare. The ninth and tenth amendments leave the social issues to the states.<quoted text>
Probably hard for you to believe, but I lean more toward Libertarianism than anything, but your argument still is flawed. No where is anyone forcing a religious organization to buy contraception. Just because the pill is included, the individuals who are covered do not have to buy or use it. Who cares if the pill is part of the insurance?
The point of the is to decrease the cost of health care by covering more individuals. I have problems with government run anything, but who do you think pays for the uninsured when they go for care?
That is correct. It doesn't force religious organizations to provide contraception [directly]. It forces religious organizations to provide coverage that does include contraception. A religion is paying for something that goes against their beliefs. It is even worse if the organization is self insured.
A lot of people that call themselves Catholic use contraceptives. What an individual does on his own is that person's business. A problem occurs when a [government] imposes itself against their beliefs. Ask yourself if the government would be doing it if Muslims had the same beliefs for a perspective.
