    How will these issues be handled by Obamacare with regards to Muslim institutions in the US?

    Example: Zaytuna College is a Muslim institution. Will they be required to provide insurance and health care benefits just as Catholic institutions and if so will they be forced to go against their teachings and provide:

    1.) Meds - As any addictive product that takes over one’s mind is prohibited in
    Islam. Who will determine what meds are covered and can they refuse to give out
    certain select drugs?

    2.) Life support (who pulls the plug and when) - Since maintaining a terminal patient on
    life support for prolonged periods with no hope of meaningful recovery is prohibited.

    It is not prohibited, in any cases.
