Massachusetts Republican governor mandates employers provide ‘free’ birth control

(LifeSiteNews) – On Monday, the Republican governor of Massachusetts signed into law unanimously-passed legislation requiring all employers, regardless of moral objections, to provide employees with “free” contraception and abortifacient drugs.

“Massachusetts has a chance to send a message to other parts of the country about how we think and feel about this issue,” Gov. Charlie Baker said at the bill’s signing ceremony.

The President of Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion vendor, praised the law, saying “we need everyone — lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, business leaders, artists — to follow Massachusetts’ lead and take action.”

Dr. Jennifer Childs-Roshak of Planned Parenthood’s Massachusetts advocacy fund said this is “a monumental victory for Massachusetts women and families.”

The law was passed in response to the Trump administration issuing regulations freeing conscientious objectors like the Little Sisters of the Poor from being forced to participate in the provision of contraception and abortifacient drugs. The Catholic Church teaches that the use of contraception is “intrinsically evil” (CCC 2370).

The Little Sisters of the Poor’s mission is to uphold the dignity of human life by caring for the elderly poor.

The states of California and Pennsylvania are already suing the Trump administration for now allowing employers to follow their beliefs.

“Good research shows that very few sexually active women forgo contraception due to either cost or availability,” Dr. Michael New, a Visiting Associate Professor of Economics at Ave Maria University and an Associate Scholar at the Charlotte Lozier Institute, told LifeSiteNews.

New is a leading social scientist with expertise in abortion- and contraception-related public policy.  read more

  1. Say this “free” BC law stays in effect? How are you going to pay “free” out of nothing? I’m gazing with bloodshot eyes into my cracked and cloudy crystal ball, and I foresee companies with a conscience departing for friendlier, less taxing and burdrensome states. Hasta la vista, assholes.

  2. TIME TO SECEDE YET?

    Anyone else starting to think maybe liberal sharia law should be separate from Constitutional law?

    Maybe states should pick a color and elect representatives and Presidents under that color. LOOK AT EUROPE. They are split in the same way. That’s what is coming for us, they are always the test case.

  3. I’m seriously thinking that these libtards know something we don’t know and this is why they have no problems dealing free shit out to everyone that’ll breathe.

    1. Either the libtards truly are stupid, or
    2. They know the end is near and it doesn’t matter what they do.

    If you knew money would soon be totally worthless, wouldn’t you go on a spending spree too?

    Secession was tried, when it was legal.

    (Give me a minute — make that an hour — to lick Consitutionalists’ boots… There. Rule of Law. Greatest Law evah! I’m not worthy!… Now…)

    Maybe you should think about expulsion. It’s like the difference between charging more for a credit card purchase — illegal — as opposed to discounting everything that is not a credit card purchase — perfectly legal.

  5. They don’t call him “Tall Deval” for nothing; he’s also a died in the wool “Nevertrumper.” I doubt he’ll be re-elected as most Republicans in the soviet commonwealth simply have no use for him and don’t like him. He is the ‘third term’ of Deval.
