Obama Campaigns on ‘Contraception Coverage, Guaranteed’

By Eric Scheiner | May 1, 2012 | 12:02pm EDT

(CNSNews.com) - “Contraception coverage – guaranteed” touts the ‘Forward’ web video for the Obama campaign.

The campaign video highlights some of the laws passed by the Obama administration, including the Affordable Care Act.

A montage of doctors with patients and people sorting prescription medications is shown in the video and a voice-over says, “He passed historic health reform. And now insurance companies can’t deny children coverage for pre-existing conditions. Seniors pay less for prescriptions. Contraception coverage - guaranteed.”

The Obama administration issued final regulations in February that would force all insurance companies to provide coverage of contraceptives – including morning after pills – without copays, exempting only religious employers that employ and serve members of their own faiths such as churches or seminaries. All other employers and all other individuals, Catholic or otherwise, would be required to pay into health insurance plans that offer abortifacients, artificial birth control, and sterilizations, which are contrary to Catholic teaching.

All 181 Catholic Bishops in the United States, who speak for the Church and who represent 66 million Catholics nationwide, have denounced the rule and are calling for it to be rescinded.

The campaign video also features other controversial issues of the Obama administration ranging from the repeal of the military’s ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy on homosexuals to efforts to increase solar energy production.
