Sheldon Richman Says Dump the Contraception Mandate (and the Rest of Obamacare)

Obamacare ExchangeProponents of Obamacare’s contraception mandate
warn that if religious employers can opt out of paying for
contraception, what’s to keep any employer from claiming a
conscientious objection to all Obamacare (or other) mandates?
Nothing, hopes Sheldon Richman. Religious people who oppose
contraception are not the only people with rights against the
government. No one should be subjected to government mandates. The
only thing any of us can be legitimately required to do is
abstain from initiating force and fraud against
others. Enforceable decrees that go beyond that simple prohibition
violate our rights and have no place in a civil society.
