    We can't just sit here and call the CC names in hopes they will back off.

    Where are all the women and groups that support their health in this? You'd think the PP issue would have somehow mobilized more women on the front.

    •  And this is an attempt at that, no? (0+ / 0-)

      I'm not sure it is the best way to go either, but at least it is an attempt.

      ...this debate since before this particular diary appeared? PP should be out in front on this. But, in the minds of many people they are demonized. Look at the legislation attacking them that has passed in the most recent 12 months. And, when we were supporting PP here during much of that time, there was always a group on hand to inform us that this was a bad idea, that it was a "distraction" from "real" issues, that reproductive freedom was a tangent that was occupying too much of our time.

      The issue here is that the Church wants to stick its nose into secular business. It isn't just saying that its affiliated organizations should not be covered by the Obama rule; it wants to dictate that this rule not cover anyone. Once again, the Holy Father and his brethren are trying to impose Church doctrine not only on Catholic women who ignore it but on the rest of us. And they are doing so not from any pinnacle of moral authority but rather from a position deep in stench.

      Don't tell me what you believe, show me what you do and I will tell you what you believe.
