WASHINGTON, D.C. – Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) President Marjorie Dannenfelser deplored President Obama’s proclamation declaring today “Religious Freedom Day, 2013,” as hypocritical in light of his administration’s mandate that employers and organizations – regardless of deeply held religious beliefs or moral objections – must offer insurance plans that cover abortion-inducing drugs and sterilization.

“Our religious liberty and rights of conscience have been threatened like never before under President Obama, who has mandated that employers must cover abortion-inducing drugs in their health care plans, regardless of their moral or religious objections. President Obama must first rescind his HHS mandate before making any proclamations on the subject – this is blatant hypocrisy.”

  1. I dont Believe work should have to cover abortions. That is rediculous! If you want to kill your child — find your own way! A real woman would never kill her child! Therefore she wouldnt have to worrry about it! If its a medical reason for it to be done thats different. Just because a woman wants to be a murderer does mean Employers have to be a part of it! And I dont think anyone has the right to make them! This world is so messed up! Thanks to our Government!

  2. What has abortion got to do with religious freedom?

    You are free to believe whatever bronze age fairytales you want, but when it impinges on public policy, that is where we draw the line.

    What if my religion states that abortions should be allowed? Will you defend my right to religious freedom then? I didn’t think so.

    I think it is incredible to think that you and your crazy wizard living in the sky get a say in how other people live their lives; be it through gay marriage, science, abortion, stem cells or anything else progressive.

    I will reiterate again: you have the absolute freedom to believe in anything you want to, but when it affects other people’s lives negatively, that’s where we must draw the line and say, “no, you WILL NOT do that. You will not stop us, we will not stand for it.”

  3. So glad that someone is willing to stand up to Obama. God bless Marjorie Dannenfelser and keep her safe. In protecting our religious liberty, she is also protecting American businesses from spending money they cannot afford.
