To the Catholic Sentinel:

As it stands now, starting Jan. 1 (August for select religious organizations), businesses and nonprofits, including religious charities, hospitals, etc., whose owners refuse in good conscience to include abortion-causing drugs, sterilization and contraceptives in their employee insurance may incur a tax of $100 per person, per day. If they are put out of operation, it’s not only their aid and services and jobs we could lose.

When government seeks to own us, body and soul, freedom is at stake. And if those who resist cooperating with killing the young are crushed, who will be left to defend the old? Obamacare takes $716 billion of Medicare funds (which are also shrinking because beneficiaries are living longer and about 55 million potential payers were aborted in the last 40 years). It also rations care, partly on the basis of estimated “quality adjusted life years.”
