Obama discussed his health care debacle with his fundraiser audience in St. Louis, creating a permanent record of deception regarding health insurance.
Insurance companies have highlighted coverage of mammograms for years, but in his comments, Obama pretended that his plan would put coverage where there had been none. Quite the opposite. With his administration came a sudden reversal of medical opinion: USPSTF says women do not need annual mammograms anymore.
Most (socialized) countries no longer offer annual mammograms for women because their health programs cannot afford it.
“Insurance companies can no longer discriminate against women just because you guys give birth”. (A little sex confusion from Obama the orator.)
What Obama was really discussing is the birth control and abortion coverage. The insurance companies are being forced to cover birth control (including the forms with abortive mechanism). Surgical abortion coverage is also in the pipeline despite many denials to the contrary.
To bridge the abortion gap, the FDA approved Ella in Aug 2010. Ulipristal acetate is an analog of mifepristone, RU-486, now marketed as a morning after pill. Doses can be accumulated to provide for abortions at home, many of which will be completed at hospitals out of necessity.
In this way, the Obama administration has co opted the cooperation of every hospital in the practice of abortion.
After years of ignoring these warnings about the government coercing participation in abortion, the US Catholic Bishops have been awakened to deal with the problem.
On their website is a request for people to urge their congressional representatives to legislate a reversal of this aspect of Obamacare.
The bishops face an uphill battle after the issue of abortion and birth control has been downplayed for so many years. Use of hormonal birth control is rampant among Catholics who were raised in a vacuum of information concerning Catholic teaching on the matter, as well as the means by which the drugs operate. The Bishops are now trying to persuade people who use the pill to tell the government not to have it covered in the health care plan.
