The is a Comment on the Centers for Medicare Medicaid Services (CMS) Proposed Rule: Coverage of Certain Preventive Services under Affordable Care Act

For related information, Open Docket Folder


I am extremely disappointed in the decision of the Department of Health and Human Services to continue to demand coverage of sterilization, contraception and abortifacients.

I agree with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, which points to key areas of concern: the narrow understanding of a religious ministry; compelling church ministries to fund and facilitate services such as contraceptives, including abortion-inducing drugs, and sterilization that violate Catholic teaching; and disregard of the conscience rights of for-profit business owners.

I do not support a federal government mandate that ignores the rights of religious entities, and the adjustments offered on February 2013 do not truly address the core issues of freedom of conscience and religious liberty.
