To Christians, there may be nothing more repugnant than abortion.
But the Left doesn’t care about those deeply-held beliefs.
And now Christians everywhere could be forced to pay for abortions after what one state just did.
At the federal level, it is illegal for taxpayer funds to go toward abortion, which is something Democrats are working tirelessly to reverse.
One of the ways they are trying to do that is by having that funding come from the state level.
And since at least 2014, California has succeeded in that by forcing churches to fund abortion through their health insurance plans.
The move was championed by Planned Parenthood, which forced the state’s Department of Managed Health Care to send letters to health insurers to demand they force religious institutions to cover abortion.
The Christian Post reports:
In 2014, the Department of Managed Health Care (DMHC) sent a letter to health insurers that rescinded existing religious accommodations and mandated immediate coverage of abortion, regardless of existing plan language.
Skyline Church was one of the religious organizations with an affected plan. The letter didn’t announce a notice and comment period typical of a government change in policy. And it certainly didn’t ask for the input of the organizations affected. Rather, the DMHC mandated that the healthcare plans of employers like Skyline Church include coverage for elective abortion.
But it gets worse. The DMHC changed its policy after being urged to do so by Planned Parenthood. Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) attorneys discovered a series of emails from Planned Parenthood to the DMHC asking agency officials to “fix” exemptions for religious organizations that oppose abortion.
This means that, driven by activists at Planned Parenthood, California has gone out of its way to force pro-life churches, like Skyline, to fund abortions. And in the process, California will force people of faith like Lisa to be complicit in something that fundamentally violates their deepest beliefs.
This is how despicable the Left is on this issue.
Funding abortion violates the deepest-held beliefs of millions of Americans.
But the Left doesn’t care about that, and will stop at nothing in their radical quest to make abortion a form of birth control as common as taking an aspirin for a headache.
Do you think Christians should be forced to violate their religious beliefs by funding abortion?
