    Poll: Most say employers should be allowed not to cover contraception

    Poll: Most say employers should be allowed not to cover contraception

    By Lucy Madison

    (CBS News) A new CBS News/New York Times poll shows that most Americans believe there should be an exception for employers who may have a moral or religious objection to covering birth control for their employees.

    According to the poll, which surveyed more than 1,000 adults nationwide from March 7-11, 51 percent of Americans believe employers of any kind should be allowed to opt out of covering birth control for religious or moral reasons. Forty percent say all employers should have to cover contraceptive care.

    As part of the new health care law, the Obama administration is mandating that all employers cover contraception as part of their health insurance coverage, though religious institutions are exempted. Religiously-affiliated institutions such as schools and hospitals are also exempt, though under a compromise worked out by the administration following an uproar from religious leaders, employees of religiously-affiliated institutions will have access to contraception paid for directly by health insurance companies.

    Full poll results

    When asked specifically about religiously-affiliated employers, 57 percent of Americans said they should be able to opt out of the mandate if they have religious or moral objections. Thirty-six percent said such organizations should have to cover birth control.

    Poll: Most say employers should be allowed not to cover contraception - Political Hotsheet - CBS News
    The issue that is a non issue with the people. To quote the Clinton campaign from the 1990's...."It's the economy stupids".

    Folks are concerned with how they will feed their kids, Folks are concerned with Over 8% unemployment for the longest sustained time in the history of this country since the great depression, folks are concerned with 19% underemployment, folks are concerned with 4+ trillion dollars in new debt in less than 3 years, folks are concerned with home foreclosures continuing unabated by any Obama plan, folks are concerned with gasoline heading toward $5 a gallon driving up prices of all consumer goods and food prices hitting the stratosphere and folks are concerned with GDP growth below 2% which means we're losing ground. What they aren't concerned with is whether employers should be allowed not to cover contraception. We just want to pay our bills and feed our kids. Yet the Democrats are yeowing about contraception? How outta touch is that?

    Who in America does not believe in birth control? The Catholic church now allows birth control usage to my understanding, therefore there are no employers in America that can stand on religious grounds for not offering birth control coverage. They are just trying to save a few dollars without realizing the cost of health coverage during pregnancy and birth with the additional child to be covered is more expensive in the long run.

    I really don't care either way, the point of the thread is it really doesn't matter. Obama and the Democrats are just spinning their wheels and making a lot of noise for nothing while the economy burns in the background. It will consume them in November.

    lol... they cannot fix the economy, so they make up issues and make them seem important. How in the world is the economy even close to being something anyone can fix? We are going into a second great depression and nothing will be able to stop it.

    They could stop runaway spending and quit printing money to pay our debts for one.

    Well I would personally love that too, but they are trying to stay afloat in their happy lifestyles which will cost us dearly. The only way to get out of this now is to stop printing money and go into a short depression, which will be hard on us but the only true way out at this point. They don't want this because we might not vote for them again, therefore they are trying to stay afloat hoping something big will happen that will get them out of this mess. Enter Middle East. I believe this our clue as to why we are after world domination currently.

    It's not about anyone believing or not believing in birth control; it's about the idea that anyone should have the right to be provided with it at someone else's expense--especially if that someone else who is to be forced to bear that expense is someone who has a moral objection to it.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    I think employers, who pay for brith control, shouldn't have to pay for pregnancy and birth if the person being provided the brith control gets pregnant.

    There...problem solved.

    and that is because birth control never fails?
