Catholic Contraception Debacle

Should your employer be able to pick and choose what medicines/procedures/etc. you can have access to based on their religious or other beliefs?

Discuss.

Or, should an employee be able to force their employer to provide medicines/procedures/etc that it sees as immoral or improper based on their religious or other beliefs?

I do not think any person or organization should be forced to support something they see as immoral or improper. If you don't agree with your employer you have 2 choices, suck it up and live be their rules, or quit.

I don't want to draw this into a slippery slope argument, but where then would you draw the line? Could an employer who was a Jehovah's Witness refuse to provide procedures where a blood transfusion was involved? Could I interpret the line in the Bible that says your body is a temple and not provide my employees with surgery, because to me it's just immoral to desecrate your body by cutting it up?

I suppose so. You could also just not provide health care at all to your employees.

I would have to believe there is a bit of a limit on how much shit they can take or give on your plans ala carte. I would imagine they can say yes or no to contraception methods because it may add to their policy. I can't see though that they can say they don't want to cover appendix removal because they don't believe it really exists.

I draw the line at; the employer has the right to decide what benefits it provides to its employees. Employees do not have the right to force their employer to provide benefits it does not wish to provide, for whatever reason.

Why would you take a job if you don't agree with their coverage to begin with?

Because in today's job market if you don't have a good skill set you take whatever job you can get and then bitch about every aspect of it. When, in actuality, you should be grateful to even have a job.

It wouldn't surprise me if there was insurance companies that cater to companies with "special needs".

True, but I tend to believe it's more of a poison than anything.

Then again, I'm semi-pessimistic.

I'm enjoying the discussion, as I don't really have a dog in the fight. I just figured the forum needed a post that wasn't started by aber.

You can customize your coverages with some companies, but some don't let you customize.

Hitler has his holocaust and that was desencitizing the youth of a nation to rise up and wipe out more than 6 million jews.
This country is desencitizing the people of this nation to the holocaust of abortion. Since roe vs wade bacame law of the land we have allowed the murder of more than 50 million babies.
We have been programed to think that the pill is ok. Then they come up with the morning after pill. Abortion up to 8 months.
We allow the government to create laws that condon murder of the youth of this nation because they have convinced so many that it is a womens choice to commit murder.
I found a short clip about the comparison of the holocaust and abortion.

It's all about control.

There are more than 600 Catholic health care institutions in the United States,
12% of the total,1 and about one in six Americans is treated in a Catholic
health care institution each year.2 In 2003, there were more than 15.4 million
emergency room visits and more than 86 million outpatient visits to Catholic
hospitals.3 This would be of little interest or importance if it were not for the fact
that, as a result of Vatican-imposed guidelines, a full range of reproductive health
care services are routinely not offered at Catholic facilities.This especially impacts
people living in areas where the only health facility is a Catholic one, where it is
not obvious that a local facility is Catholic and low-income people who routinely
rely on emergency rooms at charitable hospitals for primary health care.
