Pro-Choice Groups Oppose Healthcare Choice

In an ironic move, pro-choice groups find themselves opposing healthcare choice because it isn't pro-choice. I know it sounds complicated, but let me explain.

The Sisters of the Third Order of St. Francis are rolling out a new healthcare plan, a faith-based health insurance program for federal workers in Illinois.

The only problem? "The plan specifically will prohibit payment for contraceptives, abortions, sterilization or artificial insemination."

Never mind the fact that federal workers already have nearly 250 plans to choose from across the country, or that several federal plans already place limitations on contraceptive coverage. The abortion advocates are already riled up claiming that religion is taking over the state, and this is a backdoor move to erradicate contraceptive coverage all together. Is someone scared? I don't think it's the Franciscan Sisters.
