Where in the Constitution does it say, "The government can regulate health care?" I don't see it.
At the University of Notre Dame, President Barack Obama publicly and vociferously pledged that he would provide for a "conscience clause" for those who wanted, for religious reasons, to opt out of a policy they found objectionable. But with his recent mandate, he has gone back on his word.
Now we have Sandra Fluke, a third-year law student at Georgetown University, testifying about contraceptives and insurance coverage during a hearing before the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee. Why? Because Fluke wants a Catholic institution to pay for drugs that make it possible for her to have sex without getting pregnant.
Fluke told The Washington Post she chose Georgetown knowing that the school did not cover drugs that run contrary to Catholic teaching in its student health plan. She was president of Students for Reproductive Justice and made it her mission to get the school to abandon its Catholic principles.
This student activist said that without insurance, contraception would cost $3,000 a year. A Target pharmacy near Georgetown said a one-month supply of generic contraceptive would cost only $9.
Georgetown will not give up its religion. Fluke's choice of sexual activity should be her financial responsibility. It is sad what parents teach our children today. Once again, it shows Obama's disregard for our Constitution.
