The Department of Health and Human Services announced that your college-aged daughter will receive sterilization free, should she choose to do so. Your college-aged daughter does not need to be in college to receive free sterilization. Think about these very young women, who may think, ‘hey no birth control, it’s a good thing, probably don’t want to be burdened with children away,’ and they hop on the table. Wah-lah, no children…ever, in their lives. Medical problems following the procedure are to be expected (see more below). How many young men will want to marry a young woman who is sterile? This disgraceful law sets in place thousands of women suffering deep depression over their own choices as the mature, marry and desperately want to start a family. The women affected by this new ObamaCare law are far to young to be making this decision, and it will be far too easy to make because it is FREE. On other contraceptive news, the first private lawsuit against the free contraception mandate has been filed by a private citizen and Missouri business owner, Frank O’Brien. The suit was filed by The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ). Six other lawsuits have been filed on behalf of religious schools and institutions.
Sterilization for Women at a Glance
- Surgery that prevents pregnancy

- Meant to be permanent
All student health care plans covering female college students in the United States must include coverage for free voluntary sterilization surgery, the Department of Health and Human Services announced late Friday afternoon.
Women of college age who do not attend school will also get free sterilization coverage whether they are insured through an employer, their parents, or some form of government-subsidized plan.
All student health plans, HHS said Friday as it finalized a new regulation under the Affordable Care Act (otherwise known as Obamacare) must cover the full set of cost-free women’s “preventive services” that HHS ordered last month must be covered by all U.S. health care plans.
These free “preventive services” include surgical sterilization procedures and all Food and Drug Administration-approved contraceptives, including those that cause abortions.
Frank R. O’Brien, a Catholic, is the chairman of St.-Louis-based O’Brien Industrial Holdings, LLC, which operates a number of businesses that explore, mine, and process refractory and ceramic raw materials.
O’Brien says his religious beliefs provide the framework for the operation of his businesses, which employ 87 people. The company website states the OIH mission “is to make our labor a pleasing offering to the Lord while enriching our families and society.”
A statement of the company’s values begins with the following: “Integrity. Our conduct is guided by the Golden Rule and the Ten Commandments. We will not discriminate based on anyone’s personal belief system.”
“The HHS mandate would require business people like our client to leave their religious beliefs at home every day as a condition of doing business in our society,” said ACLJ’s Francis J. Manion, who is representing O’Brien. “The HHS mandate tells people like Frank O’Brien that they have to choose between conducting their business in a manner consistent with their moral values, or conducting their business in a manner consistent with the government’s values. The constitution does not allow the government to impose such a choice.”
Parents, you will not know if your 18-year-old daughter receives a sterilization procedure, if she chooses not to tell you. There can be some significant medical problems related to sterilization by Tubal Ligation: rapid decline in estrogen levels, damage to veins and capillaries, blood volume to ovaries can be decreased, heavy and painful periods, rapid heart beat, hot flashes, night sweats. There’s more. Read it here.
The U.S. Health and Human Services Department is the vilest Department among the many vile Departments We the People are subject to – worse than the Department of Justice. Hot Air has more on contraception and religious liberty.
