Sebelius: Reduction in Pregnancy Pays for ObamaCare Contraception Mandate – So Why Do We Need a Mandate?

If this doesn’t put a chill on your bones, nothing else will. This has long been Health and Human Services Secretary Sebelius’ position, but you seldom see it put into print so baldly,  still yet she didn’t fully uncover the pate as she avoided the words “abortion,” and “sterilization,” ackknowledged today as “abortifacient,” which are also to be fully paid for by insurance companies. Sebelius claims that “the morning after pill” does not interfer with a pregnancy??? If you do not fear you are pregnant from your activities of the night before, why are you taking the “morning after pill?” Rep. Brett Guthrie suggests, if not having babies will save money, why aren’t insurance companies giving out free contraception without a mandate? Great question, and Sebelius makes that possible as she says no one will need a referral for birth control. Just ring-up your insurance company and put in your order???

Saying that Obama’s mandate “upholds religious liberty,” by relieving religious institutions and religiously affiliated health care organizations to pass the cost that initially would be born by them on to the insurance company who is mandated to pay for the birth control – in theory making your contraception free to you. In this video, Rep. Tim Murphy (R-PA) asks Sebelius:

Who pays for it? There’s no such thing as a free service,” Murphy asked.

Sebelius responded that that is not the case with insurance.

Only in the Time of Obama would that be considered to be halfway true. If he is allowed to “mandate” this action, the cost will be passed on to you and me through our premiums.

“The reduction in the number of pregnancies compensates for cost of contraception,” Sebelius answered.

Murphy expressed surprise by the answer.

“So you are saying, by not having babies born, we are going to save money on health care?” Murphy asked.

Sebelius replied, “Providing contraception is a critical preventive health benefit for women and for their children.”

Murphy again sought clarification.

“Not having babies born is a critical benefit. This is absolutely amazing to me. I yield back,” he said.

No doubt Murphy was speechless.

After the hearing Congressman Brett Guthrie (R-KY) had time to do some thinking, and posits that if Sebelius’ is correct, we would not need a mandate:

If you think about it, why don’t health insurance companies provide it now if the argument is health insurance companies are going to make a lot of money? If the health insurance companies were really acting in their own best interest, they would be giving these pills out for free, if it really saved money,” Guthrie added.

Note in the video Sebelius says the “religious institution” is not required to refer the patient to any institution for their contraception. She seems to indicate that if you want contraception and your health care provider will not provide it, you just contact your insurance provider (assumed to be your Government in the not too distant future) and place your order for your birth control of choice.

While Americans abort their children in huge numbers, Muslims will not. It’s a fact. The Black minority is growing due to abortion. It’s a fact.

  • This woman, the Cabinet, the President, all his advisers, and the Trolls in congress only want one thing. They want us to bow and submit to their will. They will keep us safe from ourselves because they know what’s best for us. Pardon my french … They are and arrogant bunch of bastards!

    • Woodsterman, they are all that. They want no morals to guide this country. Such thinking is not acceptable to them. Obama came into office with a plan to extinguish all sense of morality and he is right on schedule. We have slowed him down a second.

  • I really cannot believe the thought process that exists in the heads of these cretins. Thanks for the plug Maggie.
