Think this’ll fly with Governor Inslee?
SEATTLE - The Bishops representing 1.3 million Catholics in Washington State want Governor Inslee to veto a bill that would require health insurance companies to offer abortion coverage, if maternity coverage is also offered.
According to a governor’s spokesperson, Inslee has support reproductive parity in the past.
The Bishops claim the measure offers no ‘opt-out’ for religious, moral or conscience reasons.
“This legislation infringes on religious liberty and conscience protections on the part of individuals and employers here in the state of Washington,” said Joe Sprague, Executive Director of the Washington State Catholic Conference.
The bill’s sponsor, State Sen. Steve Hobbs (D-Lake Stevens) said it’s a victory for the women in the state.
“It’s a choice that this state has made through initiatives, saying that we are a pro-choice state,” said Hobbs. “So I think that decision should rest with the women.”
The bill states, “If a health plan, other than a multi-state health plan, issued or renewed on or after January 1, 2019, provides coverage for maternity care, the health plan must also provide a substantially equivalent coverage to permit the abortion of a pregnancy.” Read more HERE
REMNANT COMMENT: The baby-killers' insatiable lust for the blood of the innocent is getting downright frightening. All the Left in this country seems to care about these days is making sure every American not only approves but also pays for the murder of babies and the national promotion of sodomy. That's it. Nothing else matters. The economy is booming right now, but how who cares! Hillary was shamed and Trump addressed the National Right to Life March this year.
One can only imagine what's going to happen to this country after these people make sure Donald Trump becomes a one-termer. They will sell their souls to the Devil to make sure pro-family, pro-life, pro-God voters are first silenced and then criminalized.
Maybe a few Catholic bishops are beginning to realize the ramifications of "updating" the Catholic Church in order to appease the world. Maybe some of them are finally starting to suspect that, from the beginning, the world was only interested in first silencing and then destroying the Catholic Church.
Anyway, it’s working like a charm. Silenced, marginalized, largely irrelevant, the Church of Vatican II now sits on the sidelines, reviled and pathetic – reduced to begging for mercy from the very people to whom she imagined she was reaching out when she set down her tiara, threw out her statues, busted up her high altars, and agreed to become the Church of Accompaniment. Trouble is, the world doesn't want her company. The world only wants the Catholic Church to shut the hell up. And, for the most part, the world is getting its way.
