Posted on 07/19/2013 8:07:24 PM PDT by marshmallow
Georgetown Universitys health insurance will cover contraception starting next month for students, faculty, and staff.
The announcement came in the form of a blast email to the entire campus from university president John DeGioia, indicating that because the Affordable Care Act requires that all insurance policies cover contraceptives (including abortifacients and sterilization procedures), all students, faculty, and staff will have that coverage, which goes into effect August 15th. Wrote DeGioia:
These regulations give us the opportunity to reconcile our religious identity and our commitment to providing access to affordable health care. Under the framework established by the Administration, the Universitys insurance companies will cover the costs of contraceptive services for Georgetown faculty, staff and students who opt to use them, regardless of which health care plan each person has. We will continue to provide our community with access to affordable health care options, and women will have access to contraceptives at no cost to them or to the University.
According to The Hoya, students will still not be able to acquire contraception at the clinic on campus but they will be able to acquire contraception through the universitys insurance policy off campus.
The regulations from the Obama administration require insurance companies themselves to pay directly for contraceptive services for employees and students of non-profit organizations, like Georgetown, that oppose providing coverage for contraceptive services on religious grounds.

God help us.
makes a mockery of the Church’s teachings
ps: wasn’t Georgetown one of the schools that agreed to cover up its Christian “identity symbols” when O went there to visit/speak/campaign? or am I mistaken
She’s still a slut.
I presume she’ll light her queefs to celebrate.
Pope Francis to tweet a yawn...
Next thing you know, she’ll demand reimbursement for all the cash she’s going to have to slip some guy to keep all that “free” contraception from going to waste. For her sake and the school’s, I hope she’s content with supporters of the Democratic [sic] party: lower standards often result in lower entertainment costs.
Georgetown long ago lost its credibility as a school that promoted anything Christian.
In a few years we can look at statistics to see if there is a lower out of wedlock birth rate. Also, see if there is a lower abortion rate. No excuses anymore with free birth control.
this is a real shame, and it has happened at a good number of Christian schools, too
very unfortunate as a chief reason to attend such a school is to experience a generally-Christian campus environment ... not one that teaches patently anti-Biblical ideas pretty much across the spectrum, and not one that issues awards to notoriously anti-Christian politicians ... and not one that provides abortions for goodness’s sakes!
the Bishop should quietly tell Georgetown to shape up or ship out....
“Sandra, you ignorant...”
Oops that was Chevy Chase, this is Georgetown...
All the best Christian schools eventfully fall prey to the whims of Satan. After all, until Jesus returns, this world is his ... to go to and fro seeking that which he can profane.
Assuming the bishop disagrees.
Yes. Assuming the bishop disagrees with all this stuff. Or assuming he decides to honor his vows regardless of his personal opinions.
now they can have all the sex they want!
The bishops are too busy pushing amnesty for illegal aliens to worry about Catholic universities becoming secular whorehouses.
The “magic potions” described in Revelation 9:21 are abortifacient/contraceptive drugs.
“Nor did they repent of their murders, their magic potions, their unchastity, of their robberies.”
We now know which “god” they fear. And which one they serve.
Gee, all they’re asking is to burn a little pinch of incense in front of the divine emperor’s image. Your god won’t even notice.
“These regulations give us the opportunity to reconcile our religious identity and our commitment to providing access to affordable health care.”
Hahahahhahahhahahhahahhaahahahaaa! “Identity” - PRACTICE YOUR BELIEFS you idiots.
“Cultural Catholics” and AmChurch in full force. Jesuits... they’ve become a bunch of queers, Fordham, Gonzaga, et al. It’s shocking and dismaying.
“wasnt Georgetown one of the schools that agreed to cover up its Christian identity symbols when O went there”
Yes you are quite right. That they acquiesced to anyone’s demand in this regard is disgraceful. It is their shame.
So basically Georgetown got Fluked.
Just call her Saint Linda of Lovelace.
Agreed. Also a Terrible shame USA elected a man who’d show such utter disrespect or contempt for Christianity and JudeoChrjstian values.
“Just call her Saint Linda of Lovelace.”
Great! Now she’ll demand free listerine. Courtesy the taxpayer!
Georgetown cannot be considered a “Catholic” university anymore. Wonder why they even wanted to?
When will people realize that abortion is NOT “health care”? It is the hired killing of the unborn - destructive to its health and potentially the mother’s as well.
Protesters Question Clergyman’s Loyalty
At Archbishop Jose Gomez Residence
Dozens of protesters have shown up at Archbishop of Los Angelus Jose Gomez residence many carrying American flags and bearing signs questioning his loyalty to the US not Mexico along with many signs demanding equal rights for American citizens in Mexico.
The protest was apparently triggered by the clerics decision to push forward with his predecessors decision the disgraced Cardinal Mahoney with offering amnesty thus citizenship to Mexicans crossing the border illegally while thousands of Americans in Mexico suffer under 2nd class citizenship unable to own property and suffer indignitys let alone participate in Mexican elections while living there in Mexico.
A spokeswoman for the group, Harriet Hildegarden insisted her group consists of Catholics loyal to the church. “We will be protesting at other locations where prominent clergy of the church have sided with the Obama regime”Hildy” claims the church is supporting the democrat party which denied God at their convention and declared what she claims is war on the Catholics but would collude with i t on many issues including “amnesty” .
When asked if she may be denied communion for her activities her reply was “Well it’s been known that when that happens quicker when clerics get personally attacked than when some politican challanges the church on the grounds of faith and morals” . You didn’t hear much from them (the bishops) about the Gosnell baby murderer trial. Now that it’s winding up perhaps the bishops might call a “conference” next year but they sure acted swiftly when it comes to allowing this country resigning its soverign rights new parishioners.
yeah. The catholic hospitals boards said the same thing.
The camel’s nose in the tent, but they will go along because supporting OBama is more important than obeying the church.
Will their insurance cover being sued for promoting the spread of STD's?
Will they switch to being a Unitarian-Universalist or Baha'i university after the Pope gives them a swift kick?
These regulations give us the opportunity to reconcile our religious identity and our commitment to providing access to affordable health care.
Only a consummate liar or a complete idiot could make a statement like that...or perhaps a liberal university president. He forgot to add, ..."and to insuring that a 'good time' was had by all while attending Georgetown University. We owe this reconciliation and enlightenment to that supreme example of 'good time girls', Sandra Fluke!"
Quietly tell? Really?
This would be more appripriate.
"And making a whip of cords, he drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and oxen. John 2:15 ESV
I hope they have good coverage for the treatment of STDs as Sandra Fluke may have more need for that than contraception.
