Guam- The Catholic Church is against a mandate in Obamacare that automatically funds contraceptive and sterilization services through health care premiums.
The church is concerned that come August 1, all catholic institutions not covered by a religious exemption will be required to include these services in its employee health care coverage. Father Frances Walsh explains the church is concerned because this Obamacare mandate blurs the line between church and state.

“What the Catholic Church is concerned about is the fact that the Obama administration is attempting to collapse the distinction between state and society” said Walsh. “It is claiming total potentiality that it has a right to control all of the institutions in the society that puts limits on the state.”
He added, “Contraception separates sex from procreation and in doing that, it distorts the whole meaning of human sexuality. The other issue is sterilization. Sterilization is another form of contraception.”
The Catholic Church on Guam must find out how Obamacare affects local insurance providers and if it will drop insurance coverage to stay within its beliefs.
