Ok i still need some calarification:
From an article:
"California is one of 28 states that require institutions that offer prescription insurance to cover contraception. The law has been in place since 2001. The University of San Francisco and St. Mary's College in Moraga are among the universities that comply with state law but are concerned with the federal changes."
So where was the outrage over CA's law?
If hte Church has gotten around this law, how is it being done?
See the following:
Claim: “Over half of Americans already live in the 28 States that require insurance companies cover contraception: Several of these States like North Carolina, New York, and California have identical religious employer exemptions. Some States like Colorado, Georgia and Wisconsin have no exemption at all.”
Response: This misleads by ignoring important facts, and some of it is simply false. All the state mandates, even those without religious exemptions, may be avoided by self-insuring prescription drug coverage, by dropping that particular coverage altogether, or by taking refuge in a federal law that pre-empts any state mandates (ERISA). None of these havens is available under the federal mandate. It is also false to claim that North Carolina has an identical exemption. It is broader: It does not require a religious organization to serve primarily people of its own faith, or to fulfill the federal rule’s narrow tax code criterion. Moreover, the North Carolina law, unlike the federal mandate, completely excludes abortifacient drugs like Ella and RU-486 as well as “emergency contraceptives” like Preven.
White House Misrepresents it’s own Mandate
