Most of the lawsuits filed by Institutions over the HHS mandate have been dismissed for lack of standing. The judges have stated that there is no immediate threat because the feds have delayed implementation for a year to allow an ‘accommodation’ to be worked.
Only one problem, President Obama says there will be no accommodation.
President Obama promised not to “give any ground” on the contraception mandate that went into effect yesterday, despite lawsuits that contend the mandate violates the religious liberty of Americans who oppose contraception but will have to fund it anyway.
“[Women] are beginning to gain access to contraception at no additional cost I’m not going to give any ground to those who would deny women their own health care choices,” Obama told the women of the BlogHer conference in a video feed address. He was referring to the Health and Human Services Department’s mandate that insurance policies provide all women with free contraception and arguing that the refusal to pay for someone’s contraception is tantamount to denying that person access to health care.
There is no accommodation. There will never be an accommodation. It is all a lie.
The only accommodation is victory. Victory is November, or victory in the courts, or victory in defiance. They must be defeated.
