    These people lack standing. After their tax credits their monthly payment is only $2.63, hardly an economic hardship. Furthermore no one is forcing them to engage in behavior they find offensive any more than paying taxes for roads allows persons to drive to an abortion clinic. Another example of religious people forcing their beliefs on others.

    What if I wanted a health insurance policy that did not cover negros, because my belief was that they were subhuman and should not entitled to see "white persons‘" doctors, and I should not have to pay for that? Wouldn‘t that be an unconstitutional violation of my First Amendment Rights using the same distorted logic. Health Insurance policies are matters of public health, not free speech. The plaintiffs will never be required to obtain an abortion under Obamacare. That is their protected constitutional right, not the right to deprive others of an abortion procedure.

    Obamacare is clearly unconstitutional on any number of fronts. The abortion coverage is just one of them. It‘s about time, voters realized that "liberals" are about anything but freedom. This is what happens when you elect a Marxist as president.
