Christendom College Alumna Says HHS Mandate Exemption Line Is Long

“Americans of faith hope the Supreme Court grants what the White House won’t,” an alumna of Christendom College wrote in an article for The Washington Times.

Emily Minick, a member of Christendom’s graduating class of 2010, argued that exemptions should be made for those who object on conscious grounds to the HHS mandate, which includes health insurance coverage of contraception, sterilization, and abortifacients.

Minick wrote:

If there’s one thing that Americans and special-interest groups can agree on these days, it’s that they want to be exempted in some capacity from Obamacare… With 54 percent of likely voters disapproving of the law, it is no wonder the exemption line is so long…

A new poll conducted by the Family Research Council and Alliance Defending Freedom finds that 59 percent of likely voters, and 61 percent of independents, oppose the contraception mandate, which requires that private individual and group health care plans cover all Food and Drug Administration-approved contraceptives and sterilization services, without any co-pay, by 2014. These include drugs such as Ella and the morning-after pill, both of which can destroy a human embryo…

Freedom of religion extends to one’s health care plan, and is something we hope the Supreme Court will recognize this spring when it hears two cases challenging the Health and Human Services mandate on religious-liberty grounds brought by Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood.

Christendom College is recommended in The Newman Guide for strong Catholic identity.
