California Forces Churches to Fund Abortions

California is always on the cutting edge, so it should be no surprise that this state has taken the next logical step in the use of the government’s micromanagement of healthcare insurance to force Christians to abandon their moral principles:

California’s Department of Managed Health Care has ordered all insurance plans in the state to immediately begin covering elective abortion. Not Plan B [which liberals falsely claim does not technically cause abortion]. Not contraceptives. Elective surgical dismemberment abortion.

At the insistence of the American Civil Liberties Union, the DMHC concluded that a 40-year-old state law requiring health plans to cover “basic health services” had been misinterpreted all these decades. Every plan in the state was immediately ordered, effective August 22, to cover elective abortion. …

The news has slowly leaked out as insurers grappling with this change have begun quietly informing employers of this sudden change in the terms of their policy.

Since we live in moonbat upside-down world, churches are still permitted to exclude contraceptives from their health plans on religious grounds, but not the surgical dismemberment of babies, because the militant degenerates running the state government have decreed that killing your own child is a “basic health service.”

This demonstrates why no free country would allow the government to dictate what is covered in health insurance policies. The terms of voluntary contracts must be left to those who sign them. Introducing government coercion is tyranny. When liberals are in charge, this tyranny takes the form of moral depravity and grotesque social engineering.

Attempting to force Christians to act against their beliefs is a prominent feature of both the ObamaCare power grab and the “gay rights” blitzkrieg. It isn’t a coincidence. Hollowing out Christianity by criminalizing its principles will eradicate this crucial defensive barrier against authoritarian utopianism.

Liberal tyranny: churches are forced to kill the innocent.
