I take it, then, that Christian Scientist employers should be exempt from providing any health insurance? That Jehovah's witnesses employers should be exempt from providing health insurance that covers blood transfusions? Let's not get started on Scientologist employers. Every other modern industrialized nation seems to provide a common health insurance package for all without descending into slavery. Express your religious views when you worship, not when you make public policy. You are not paying for this or that medical procedure. You are paying premiums for your employees, who may not agree with you, to have the same treatments any other American can get from a doc. Treatments you need not accept (although polls say 98% of Catholics in fact use birth control, which seems to be the current issue...Catholics having more political stroke than Christian Scientists).
