The Little Sisters of the Poor are a religious organization made up of celibate nuns who devote their entire lives to the care of the indigent. Obama has granted 500 exemptions to Obamacare. These exemptions cover over a 100,000 people. Somehow celibate nuns who take care of the poor do not qualify as a religious organization. Religious liberty is not under attack?
As the Supreme Court sent a case regarding religious freedom and contraception back to the lower courts in the hope of finding a compromise, Democratic Party presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton came down against compromise on the controversial issue.
The issue in the case revolves around a mandate in Obamacare and whether religious institutions should be forced to pay for coverage which violates their deeply-held religious beliefs.
Every woman, no matter where she works, deserves birth control coverage. This shouldn’t be a question. #SCOTUS -H

@HillaryClinton Disagree. Still, nuns forced to pay in violation of Constitution you’ll have to defend as POTUS? Scary.
