What about the Christians' right to choose?

Plan B morning-after pill 3A political insider says abortion providers and their supporters in Massachusetts are showing a complete disregard for Christians.

C.J. Doyle of the Catholic Action League of Massachusetts tells OneNewsNow the abortion proponents are pushing the Access Bill, even though "what liberals call access is really a state-mandated subsidy." Doyle adds that the measure's supporters want to maximize use of contraceptives and abortion-causing drugs while requiring taxpayers to pay for it.

"What Planned Parenthood wants and what NARAL wants is to eliminate all remaining limitations, and reviews, and restrictions on this and to eliminate all co-pays and deductibles so the taxpayers and employers, including religious institutions, will be forced to provide other people's contraceptives, sterilizations, and chemical abortions," the pro-lifer explains.

That includes discussions of free coverage of Plan B, or the "morning-after" pill.

"This is a case of the hypocrisy of the left," Doyle insists. "They talk about tolerance, and pluralism, and respect for diversity, but there's no respect for the consciences of Christians here. They talk about the right to choose, but taxpayers and employers will have no right to choose; they'll be forced to subsidize things they believe is morally wrong."

The vast majority of representatives and senators are listed as allies of Planned Parenthood, so Doyle predicts lawmakers will approve the bill, and liberal Governor Charlie Baker (R) will likely sign it. But legal challenges are expected to follow.
