    California Considers Forcing Catholic Universities To Pay For Abortions
    http://www.sfgate.com/news/article/2...it-5680932.php



    California has some of the nation’s strongest protections for abortion rights. But the recent decisions by two Catholic universities, Santa Clara and Loyola Marymount, to eliminate most abortion insurance coverage for their employees were cleared in advance by state agencies.

    Now Gov. Jerry Brown’s administration is taking another look.

    The state Department of Managed Health Care is conducting “an in-depth analysis of the issues surrounding coverage for abortion services under California law,” said Marta Green, the department’s chief deputy director.

    What the department is reconsidering, as first reported by California Lawyer magazine, is whether the universities are violating a 1975 state law that requires managed health plans to cover all “medically necessary” procedures.

    You know, abortion isn't such a hot-button issue for me. By far, my biggest one is when the all-knowing elites that make up the government and their (mostly) academic enlightened "intellectual" advisers feel it their duty to make more and more decisions for us. And, they do so without consulting us....or....sometimes we little people get to vote on an issue. Of course, if they don't approve of the result, there is always some overstepping judge (belonging to the same country club) waiting to change the outcome as its apparent we can't comprehend the complexity of such matters. No worries, they are there to guide us.
    Fuck these people. Every breath they take is wasted air.

    This is exactly how they are. They've already made the decisions: they only pretend to let us think we had some hand in it.

    I have no doubt that the Catholic universities do cover "medically necessary" procedures.
    Be Not Afraid.
