Obama’s Contraceptive Mandate In Effect for Businesses | TheBlaze.com

Obama’s Contraceptive Mandate Goes Into Effect | TheBlaze.com.

As of August 1, businesses are now forced to cover birth control, abortion and sterilizations for free, according to the Obama Health and Human Services Mandate.

Those business owners who oppose any of the above have been stripped of their First Amendment Right of religious freedom.

One exception has been made for the Catholic owned business,  Hercules Industries which sued in Colorado  for exemption from the mandate, while its lawsuit is being considered.

Two other lawsuits have been dismissed, on technical issues rather than on the merits of the cases.

Now Obamacare Faces the Religious Freedom Challenges

Becket Fund’s HHS Mandate Challenge | Becket Fund.

There are dozens of federal lawsuits based upon the violations of human rights, that are expressed in the Sebelius HHS Mandate of Obamacare. At issue is its funding of birth control, sterilization and abortion, by forcing people to pay for it in violation of their religion. Obamacare also provides these services to minors without parental consent. Alliance Defense Fund has a fact sheet explaining these aspects of Obamacare.

The Colson center outlines the coming legal challenges to Obamacare in an article HERE.

In addition to religious affiliated organizations, private businesses owned by people of conscience are also filing suit against the Obamacare mandate, for example, O’Brien Industrial Holdings, LLC, represented by the American Center for Law and Justice.

Obama Testing to see how many U.S. Catholics are Unsalvagable for Dems

Obama, the born-again Catholic | The Daily Caller.

The Obama campaign is touting Obama’s leftist Catholic connections during his community organizer days in Chicago. He is blaming his activism on lessons he learned while working with the likes of Father Pfleger who has since been censured by the church for placing political advocacy above Catholic teaching.
Obama’s campaign move is in response to his marked drop in approval among Catholics, due to his Abortion Healthcare Mandate. His recent advocacy of gay marriage is likely to affect his standing among Hispanic Catholics significantly.

*The media continues to ignore the tsunami of lawsuits filed by religious organizations against the Healthcare Mandate, which forces participation in abortion, artificial birth control and sterilization, all of which are antithetical to Catholic beliefs, and those of many other denominations.

Crony Capitalism at the FDA – Comes Back To Bite

Medical News: FDA Yaz Panel Had Ties to Industry – in Washington-Watch, FDA General from MedPage Today.

Some of the panalists on the FDA advisory committee which endorsed the Yaz and Yazmin branded birth control pills, had ties to Bayer, the manufacturer of those pills.

The panelists of the Reproductive Drugs Advisory Committee and the Drug Safety and Risk Management Advisory committee  jointly voted 15 to 11  that the benefits of drosperinone-containing BCPs outweighed the risks.

Some  members reported their financial  ties to Bayer,  and the FDA thought that was just fine, and not a conflict of interest sufficient for their exclusion from the advisory groups.

Sidney Wolfe, MD, of Public Citizen comsumer advocacy group had opposed that class of birth control pills due to risk of thromboembolism.   His role on the advisory committee was reduced to non-voting status due to his ‘intellectual conflicts’.

Intellectual conflict = bad.  Financial conflict = good.

What goes around, comes around, and Bayer has to feed the lawyers now, after years of untoward post-marketing experience.

Was this an purposefully  constructed food chain?


Cincinnati Funds Planned Parenthood Covering Up Child Rape | LifeNews.com

Cincinnati Funds Planned Parenthood Covering Up Child Rape | LifeNews.com.

Cincinnati’s Board of Health could find no better provider than Planned Parenthood for its program of HIV testing and prevention.    An $85,000 dollar grant is going to the same Planned Parenthood affiliate which was sued for failure to comply with Ohio’s informed consent law with respect to abortion procedures.

Planned Parenthood Southwest Ohio is recognized for the two lawsuits stemming from its failure to notify authorities concerning abortions for  minor females, in whom pregnancy is evidence of statutory rape at the very least.  The men causing the pregnancies in both of these cases have jail time for their crimes.

Pharmacist Conscience Clauses- A Free Review of the Review

Hospital Pharmacy – Volume 46 – Number 5 / May 2011 – RxLegal – Pharmacist Conscience Clauses: Continuing Debate – Journal Article.

When the “experts” are called upon to provide commentary in professional Journals, it would help if they research their work sufficiently to write something accurate and useful.

Michael Gabay, Pharm D, JD, BCPS,  has attempted to present the topic of Pharmacists conscience clauses, which have led to legislation excusing pharmacists from dispensing drugs which may operate to kill  a human organism.

Listed below are a few of the troubles with Gabay’s article:

1) The implication that RU-486 contributed to pharmacists’  conscientious objection conflicts.  Mifepristone/misoprostil  regimen was highly regulated, and dispensed by the abortion practitioners themselves, rather than pharmacists.  The article gives no mention of ulipristal acetate, the new analog of mifepristone which is now approved as a morning after pill, doses of which may be accumulated to accomplish a later abortion.  (Way to keep current, Dr. Gabay.)

2) Glaring omissions of significant, current,  judicial decisions.  Dr. Gabay is a Clinical Associate Professor in the Dept. of Pharmacy Practice, University of Illinois, Chicago. Yes, he is in Illinois, a member of the Chicago Bar Association, and inactive member of the Illinois Bar. His article failed to mention the group of lawsuits recently decided  in his own state, involving conscientiously objecting pharmacists and pharmacy owners, Walgreens and former Gov. Blagojevich. It is possible that Dr. Gabay, JD, was not aware of these significant court decisions, or perhaps he did not approve of them.

3) Garbled facts of the K Mart controversy, which actually involved a refusal to dispense progestin-only birth control drugs, not all “oral contraceptives” as the article incorrectly states.

4) Attributing the statement that oral contraceptives can prevent “implantation of a fertilized ovum”, to a person who knew better than that.  Embryology lesson begins  here:  Fertilization of the secondary oocyte, produces an evanescent form called the zygote, that immediately begins cellular division, and proceeds to the next stage.  By the time the human organism reaches the uterus to begin implantation, its embryonic form has differentiated into a blastocyst. (Dr. Gabay forgot the basic  anatomy/physiology stuff which should have been prerequisite to his Pharm D.)

5) Dr. Gabay still appears not to know what Ms. Brauer  knew about the mechanisms of birth control drugs,  and the progestin, norethindrone, in particular. The actual disagreement in the K Mart case is  still readily visible on the net:  Page 1 and Page 2.

6) The crux of ethical objection to dispensing drugs which act, to a significant extent, to stop the life of a human organism is just that.  It is not tied up in the various newer concepts  of “abortion” and “pregnancy” which exclude the early human embryo.  Abusing these terms to obfuscate the issue  violates the patients’ right to give informed consent. The law has established no cogent or consistent basis for determining which human organisms may be willfully  killed and which may not.

The complimentary review and editorializing  will end here, to prevent  reader fatigue.

The take home lesson for users of the literature in science and medicine is to read critically.   Much of it is incomplete and factually “challenged” whether it is primary literature, or review and commentary,  as in the case of Dr. Gabay’s article.

The value of extensive,  formal education (as currently supplied)  is also called into question, as it increasingly appears not to be helping with the quality of intellectual output.

Report: Doctors Refusing to Treat Overweight Patients | CNSnews.com

Remember the obstetricians revolting against the crazy malpractice lawsuits and refusing to treat lawyers or their spouses?

Remember when the wrongful life lawsuits drove obstetricians in  France to refuse prenatal ultrasonography?

Report: Doctors Refusing to Treat Overweight Patients | CNSnews.com.

This new trend has a different basis, but  is completely EXPECTED.   The Obstetricians are now turning away overweight patients, citing a lack of equipment to take care of the very huge, and the high risks involved in the care, particularly in managing child birth.

Expect  MORE of the larger ladies  to be denied  prenatal care, and come into the emergency room, with neglected diabetes and other complications, ready to deliver.
