Tell the Catholic Church; Cover birth control on healthcare plans.

    1. Petition by

      Mary Kelly

It is time to join 98% of Catholics who use birth control.
Not all people employed by Catholic organizations are Catholic. In view of this, we urge the Catholic Church to cover birth control for ALL of their employees. Healthcare is the right of all Americans, and it should be the personal choice of the Catholic Church's employees whether or not they want to make use of it.
The Catholic Church officially forbids contraception use, but 98% of Catholic women who have been sexually active have used birth control.

      When Catholic Church institutions decided to hire non-Catholics it should have been required to provide complete health care insurance to them. I see it as discrimination against these non-Catholics, not an attack on religious freedom.

      And yes, I am Catholic and I do work for a Catholic institution. I am of the 98% that has used birth control.

      Healthcare is a right that should be available to all women regardless of religious affiliation or employment. If you believe Catholic women should not use birth control than convince them.

      The bishops are so out of touch with their parishioners. For a group who were able to turn their backs on pedophilia until forced to address it, why would anyone pay attention to them.

      This is an issue that a woman should have the right to choose. Polls indicate that 98% of Catholic's choose birth control in spite of what the Catholic Church says. The disconnect between the Church and their parish is probably why Catholics are leaving the Church.
