    Many Catholic Universities, Hospitals Already Cover Contraception In Their Health Insurance Plans
    By Igor Volsky on Feb 7, 2012

    University of Scranton, for example, appears to specifically cover contraception. The University of San Francisco offers employees two health plans, both of which cover abortion, contraception and sterilization…Also problematic is the Jesuit University of Scranton. One of its health insurance plans, the First Priority HMO, lists a benefit of “contraceptives when used for the purpose of birth control.”
    DePaul University in Chicago covers birth control in both its fully insured HMO plan and its self-insured PPO plan and excludes “elective abortion,” said spokesman John Holden, adding that the 1,800 employee-university responded to a complaint from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission several years ago and added artificial contraception as a benefit to its Blue Cross PPO.
    Christian Brothers University in Memphis, Tenn., offers employee health insurance via the Tennessee Independent Colleges and Universities Association, a consortium of Christian Bible and other private college and universities. Its plan excludes abortion, but probably covers artificial contraception as a prescription drug, said C. Gregg Conroy, the executive director of the TICUA Benefit Consortium.

    I have been telling these people this for a week. They are unanimously denying this fact, despite it being irrefutable,

    mainly because once they acknowledge it their entire defense of the Church collapses in every aspect.

    They will try to let your thread die by ignoring it.

    The dirty little secret that the right keeps denying. Do you hear that? It's the sounds of 40 million cons putting their fingers in their ears and saying, "I can't hear you, I can't hear you".
