Uncommon Commentary #242: If Only it Were Sebelius the Composer Who Heads HHS

Roman Catholic leaders are rightfully vowing to fight the mandate by Emperor Nerobama's Department of Health and Human Services that employers provide birth control, that is, abortifacients, contraceptives, and sterilization, to their workers; the government scheme ought to be opposed not only by Roman Catholics, however, nor even just by them and by other Christians, but by everyone who either doesn't want to turn social engineering into an entitlement or doesn't want to pay for what's unnecessary.  Preventing childbirth, after all, has almost nothing to do with health; bearing children is perfectly normal for a sexually mature female.  (I wouldn't even have advised HHS chief Kathleen Sebelius's mother to use birth control.)
