    I'm not a Catholic, and I have no problem with contraception, but I think this is the thin end of the wedge. You want to work at Notre Dame and use condoms / the pill? Tough. Pay for it yourself or find somewhere that does cover it.

    I appreciate the compromise the Government has tried to work out but, seriously, how to you mandate that insurers pay for people who want contraception but not pass on the cost of providing it? This legislation is as well thought out as a tossed salad.

    Liberals perverts who are completely intolerant of others.

    In a sane world, the government wouldn't have mandated that Catholics provide, or pay for, contraception. In a sane world, there would be no question that the courts would rule in favor of the Church's First Amendment rights over the non-right to force someone to pay for or provide birth control.

    The operative word is "forced". Religious institutions are forced to violate their own belief system by supplying free methods of contraception to employees. The mandate is probably an intentional insult directed at the Catholic church which has been a vocal opponent of the powerful abortion industry.

    They're not being asked for free anything, just access to insurance. It's really an equal protection issue.

    I think the Obama team played this brilliantly...
    They knew the Catholic Church would react the way they did.
    It gave the Obama crew an opening to lie and say that the GOP was taking contraception away from women...
    The Libs fell for it all the way and now the GOP had to spend weeks cleaning up the mess that Obama caused and left the GOP looking like the bad guys.
