The Little Sisters of the Poor, a Catholic, religious order of nuns, has made it the Dirty 100 list published by NOW. The list purports to name the top 100 employers that refuse to grant contraception to their employees.
I won’t sully my personal space by going any credence to the ravings of an organization that in no way speaks for me, as a woman. Instead I’m going to focus on their utter hypocrisy. They are champions of Roe vs. Wade and are outraged when the Supreme Court follows the law and rules in a manner abhorrent to the political agenda of the organization. So, when it suits them the Supreme Court is doing the right thing but when they rule otherwise, then they are waging war on women.
The Little Sisters of the Poor fit the very definition of an employer that should not be forced to cover contraception for their employees. If their employees fail to comprehend that they are working for a Catholic employer that upholds the teachings of the Catholic Church, then they deserve the health coverage provided.
There is NO Constitutional RIGHT to contraception but there is a CONSTIITTIONAL RIGHT to freedom of religion. That means, that The Little Sisters of the Poor are free to exercise and practice their religion free from governmental interference and being forced to provide coverage of any kind for contraception is a violation of their religious freedom. And no, signing a document “opting out” of the requirements of the law is not an option.
The ultra left-wing political agenda needs to get out of our bedrooms and churches. Stop picking on nuns that are doing noble deeds that the rest of society can’t be bothered to do. The nuns deserve more respect than they are getting from NOW regardless of their political agenda.
