Chuck Colson Reacts to Obama’s “Compromise” on Required Abortion Care for Church Employees
"The president's announcement does not take religious liberty off the front burner," said Colson Center and Prison Fellowship Founder Chuck Colson.
BreakPoint, Colson Center for Christian Worldview and Prison Fellowship Founder Chuck Colson issued the following statement today regarding President Obama's proposed policy changes to the Affordable Care Act to accommodate religious liberty:
"While I'm glad the Obama Administration says that it is willing to address the issue of exempting religious organizations from the HHS mandate on abortion-inducing drugs, contraception, and sterilization, I still have grave concerns."
"To date, this administration has shown an incredible insensitivity to the First Amendment and the free exercise of religion, which means Christians must remain vigilant. The president's announcement does not take religious liberty off the front burner. Actually, the announcement raises more questions than it answers."
"On this issue, I'm from Missouri. Show me. Show me that the president has truly addressed the concerns of religious organizations, and show me how we can know that the Administration won't restore its original plan after the November elections. This is why this matter must ultimately be settled by an act of Congress on behalf of the American people."
