Scholars and Leaders Line-up to Protest Mandate

The statement below was put out by the Beckett Fund, and it says that President Obama did not “accommodate” religious liberty concerns in his recent “compromise.” The healthcare law still requires religious groups to pay for chemical abortions and contraception. I want you to notice the names on this list. It is signed by 160 scholars and leaders, and signatories include D. A. Carson, Albert Mohler, Robbie George, Russell Moore, Danny Akin, David Dockery, and many others.

    136 men and 24 women on a women’s health issue. This seems unbalanced.

    Justin: I would question whether this is best described as a “women’s health issue”. The president is certainly casting it in that mold. I think the signers would generally see this as a religious freedom matter.
