Protecting Our Right of Conscience

On January 1, 2014 the so-called “HHS Mandate” will go into effect, requiring most employers to provide insurance coverage for contraceptives, abortifacients and sterilization procedures for their employees – regardless of their moral objections to such prescriptions or procedures.

 According to the mandate, the coverage will be without a co-pay, co-insurance or a deductible; in a word, free.  In January 2012 a very narrow exception to the mandate was made, in an effort to prevent employers of non-profit charitable and religious organizations from violating their religious beliefs by providing the coverage. The exception is, however, so narrow that Sr. Mary Ann Walsh, spokesperson for the USCCB, said, “HHS has such a narrow standard as to who operates a religious ministry, Jesus himself couldn’t pass muster.”

What is our conscience? How is the HHS Mandate a threat to the conscience of Catholics who believe what the Church teaches about human life and sexuality?

In #17 of his encyclical Humanae vitae, Pope Paul VI predicted that “grave consequences” would result from the use of contraception inside marriages. Based upon his words, do you see the potential for “grave consequences” in the enforcement of the HHS Mandate? If so, what are those consequences? In what ways can you, as a young person, articulate the truth about the sacredness of human life and our sexuality – and therefore educate others about the consequences of the Mandate?
