Obamacare Attempt to Force Abortion Coverage Enjoined by Federal Judge

U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor

Most particularly, making Trump president was seen by these communities as the only way to prevent Hillary Clinton continuing the Obama administration’s unremitting war against faith-based institutions practicing what their churches preach. 

A primary reason Donald Trump won the election, in my amateur’s opinion, was because members of faith communities voted for him as a means of self-defense.

Obamacare was used by rampaging bureaucrats as the assault troops in that effort, such as attempting to force Catholic nuns to cover contraceptives.

Here’s another one which I hadn’t heard about. Apparently a regulation was promulgated that would have required abortion (and transgender issues) coverage as a means of preventing “sex discrimination.”

Now a judge has enjoined enforcement under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

From the Reuters story:
A federal judge in Texas on Saturday issued a court order barring enforcement of an Obama administration policy seeking to extend anti-discrimination protections under the Affordable Care Act to transgender health and abortion-related services. 
The decision sides with Texas, seven other states and three Christian-affiliated healthcare groups challenging a rule that, according to the judge, defines sex bias to include “discrimination on the basis of gender identity and termination of pregnancy.”
Denying abortion coverage is sex discrimination? That kind of blatant term redefinitionism (if you will) is one of the Left’s favorite weapons in the culture war they never cease waging.
