Sad ironySubmitted by Redgyl on Mon, 02/25/2013 - 13:18
My mother, who was very pro-Romney and anti-Obama, confided something to me the other day. She isn't very involved in politics except for the abortion issue, and she told me something that I didn't know: under Obamacare, even Catholic schools HAVE to teach about abortion and contraceptives, and prescribe them, and so on. Catholic hospitals, same thing, even having to prescribe aborticides. She was convinced that if America had made the right choice, this wouldn't be happening.
I felt so sad for her. She has no idea that this was pretty much what Romney did in Massachusetts. Under Romneycare, Catholic hospitals also had to provide both contraceptives and aborticides. I didn't have the heart to inform her of that bit of info. It just reminded me even more that when Ron Paul was blocked out of becoming the nominee, all choice America actually had was denied them.
