MEME: Obamacare Only Helps THIS Group Of People – And It’s Disgusting!

From Breitbart:
The Supreme Court announced today it would hear oral arguments in seven cases where Christian organizations say Obamacare’s regulation violates a law protecting their religious liberty, as well as the First Amendment.

The federal Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, penalizes employers who don’t pay for employees’ healthcare, and it’s implementing regulations demand the healthcare also include “preventive care” services for abortions, sterilizations, and birth-control products and services.
Many companies are owned and operated by observant Christians and adherents of other pro-life faiths. They sued, alleging that HHS’s regulation violates the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), as well as the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. In a watershed 2014 decision, the Supreme Court held by a 5-4 vote in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores that President Barack Obama’s HHS regulation violated RFRA, and therefore was illegal.
HHS next created what is called an “accommodation” for faith-based organizations, to avoid likely defeat when sued by religious nonprofit organizations, such as Catholic hospitals or Baptist universities. This allowed religious non-profits to sign a certification form expressing their religious objection, and so transfer their legal obligation to provide abortion-related drugs and services to the organization’s secular insurance carrier.

But faith-based groups object. If just certifying their objection would legally obligate a third party to fund abortions, these groups said it would still violate their conscience because the obvious consequences include dead unborn children. They regard it as the moral equivalent of, rather than shooting someone with a gun, Obamacare offers them the “accommodation” of making them load a gun and hand it to another person with the sole objective of that person shooting someone with the gun. The result is the same, and they want no part of it.
