  • Let's not confuse religion with health insurance
    In this current political climate in which women's access to contraceptives is seen a threat to religious freedom, it has become clear that an employer-based insurance system is perilious at best. If employers are allowed the ability to decide that providing health services constitutes an attack against religion, it is clearly time to move away from an employer-based insurance system and look towards an alternative such as offering Medicare for all American citizens. Everyone deserves a right to medical care. Your employer should not have the ability to decide that you are not allowed to be treated. Heath care needs to move to the public arena, and out of the hands of private employers.

  • Impeach religiously-based legislators and tax political churches
    Republican controlled state and local legislatures, and the US Congress, have attempted to limit access to birth control for women and carry out anti-choice religious discrimination of women through government legislation. We're calling on Americans to stand up and ask for investigations into breaches of their oath of office to protect the constitution, and for investigations into breaches of the tax exempt codes for churches delving into the political arena.

  • Give Samantha credit
    When it came time for senior Samantha Culver to get an internship, she applied for a position with Planned Parenthood of Northern New England, which she described as “an awesome opportunity.” According to Culver, she notified St. Michael’s internship office as soon as she was awarded the position. She said internship director Joanne LaBrake Muehlberger, told her it was OK. Not long after returning to school from winter break, Culver learned she would not be eligible for credit for the internship.

  • The Catholic Church does not speak for us-Keep Birth Control Free for Women
    Males in Congress and the Senate as well as leaders of the Catholic Church are ignoring the facts about how Catholics are not against the birth control provision in the Healthcare Reform Law. This is not violating Relgious Freedom as The Catholic Church is attempting to claim. A Catholic woman is not going to be required to use birth control, however it does deny Catholic and non-Catholic women the right to have free birth control in their healthcare insurance policy.

  • Let women decide their health options and not men.
    Tired of hearing older males either in politics or religion deciding what a woman should or not do with her own body. It is just outrageous that women are still subjected to this thinking. Our country is so backward from other civilized nations on this topic. Contact all law makers and let your opinion be known. Shelly Gowen

  • Protect Women's Right to Contraception
    Currently, under the name of religious freedom, many Catholic run institutions like hospitals refuse to provide health insurance coverage for contraception for their women employees even if it is medically indicated for their health (even though 98% of Catholic Women have used contraception.) It is time for all women, including Catholic women, and the men who love them, to speak up and let their voices be heard about this issue.

  • Keep Birth Control in Obama Health Plan
    Although Archbishop Dolan is against this portion of the health bill, historically, Catholics follow their beliefs. This should not rule out others who need or want this medication.

  • President Obama: Stop Apologizing for Protecting Women's Rights
    It is offensive that President Obama and the Democrats are apologizing for protecting a woman's legal access to birth control. It is the job of the President to make sure everyone's legal rights are upheld. Stop Apologizing Now!

  • Give freedom to women on health care
    Conservatives passed more laws on abortion and contraception in the last year than any time in our history. Move on to fixing the economy with more jobs. Ask your self why they are preoccupied with interfering with women.
