UPDATE – Senator Marco Rubio Introduces Bill Protecting Religious Organizations from ObamaCarePosted on February 8th, 2012.
This is a update to a previous blog, http://bit.ly/yCB9oh.
U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) introduced a bill called the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 2012 that will expand the nearly nonexistent exemption for religious employers in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, commonly known as ObamaCare. As it now stands, the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is forcing religious employers to pay for contraceptives, sterilization services, and abortion-inducing drugs for their employees.
In a failed attempt to respond to complaints, the DHHS has given religious organizations one year to adapt to the ObamaCare mandate. Sen. Rubio’s proposed bill will protect religious organizations from ObamaCare’s mandate to provide contraceptives, sterilization services, and abortion-inducing drugs.
