[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Athletes and religion : Freedom of religion means the freedom to worship how and where you choose without threat of persecution. To interpret it as the right to create a business that is immune to regulation is ridiculous. If hospital A has to provide certain options to its employees than so does hospital B, regardless of whether the administrators are Catholics, Jews or atheists. By your argument, a Christian Scientist institution should not be required to provide any type of health care to its employees.

Freedom of religion is the right to PRACTICE your religion. Catholicism teaches that taking of a life from conception to a natural death is a grave sin.
The church also teaches that to participate in another's grave sin is committing that sin also.
For example, if I were to drive a women to an abortion mill to have an abortion I would have the grave sin of abortion on my soul.
My religion teaches me that if I knowing have a grave sin on my soul and I do not sincerely repent I will go to hell.
You may not agree with what the catholic church teaches but that's not the point. The catholic church has the right to teach what she believes to her followers.
Catholics have a RIGHT TO PRACTICE THEIR RELIGION. By forcing them to provide abortion pills, sterilization and the pill they are committing a grave sin so their soul would be in jeopardy of damnation.
By the way the pill works in two ways. One is to stop ovulation hence preventing pregnancy. The other is to prevent the uterus from accepting a fertilized egg. The newly conceived child in then expelled from the womb. Millions of women have aborted millions of babies and have not realization of what they have done.
Pregnancy isn't a disease so it's prevention isn't health care. The left has uses those words to convince people women have a right to birth control, they don't.
