To The Editor:

I am supporting Mitt Romney for president because I believe he will support freedom of conscience or freedom of religion for the American people. Obama and HHS have gone too far by requiring that every employer or their health insurance provider must pay for contraceptive and certain drugs that cause abortion.

Since most Catholic organizations are self-insured, that means the health insurance provider is a Catholic organization. So, the requirement for the health insurance provider to pay for contraceptive and certain drugs that cause abortion becomes the responsibility of a Catholic organization. This is certainly contrary to Catholic principles. This is not acceptable. It is coercion, not freedom of religion.
