Democrats for Life Comment on the Contraception Mandate

Thomas Berg: “Democrats for Life have filed a comment in the latest round of the contraception-mandate dispute, arguing that the administration’s proposed compromise is inadequate and conscience protection must be expanded.  (I sit on DFL’s board, as many know, and contributed to the analysis in the comment.)  The comment focus attention on two points: (1) the especially serious conscience problems posed by medications that may reasonably be thought to cause abortions of new embryos in some cases, and (2) the bad precedent set by inserting HHS’s narrow definition of “religious employer” into federal law.”
