Religious people are for the most part appalled at the Obamacare mandate that employers must provide health insurance that will provide free abortion pills and contraceptives. This is seen as a profound assault on religious liberty, forcing people by law to do what their religion forbids.
The left, though, is framing the issue as being all about birth control, ignoring the religious liberty angle altogether. And Democrats are elated, convinced that they have found their winning issue that will make voters forget all about the economy in order to drive out of public life once and for all those crazy religious people who are against sex and who want to keep all women pregnant.
Sample the rhetoric and the cynical political strategy from this: It’s Democrats who are putting focus on birth control – She the People: – The Washington Post.
Which side do you think will be more effective in framing the issues?
