Suing Obama Over Contraceptives

Suing Obama over contraceptives isn’t just for Catholics any more.

Benedictine College’s student newspaper editor Abigail Wilson reports in Fox’s “College fix” that Colorado Christian University has joined the fray.

She interviewed Ron Benton at the Denver area interdenominational Christian school.

Colorado Christian University “is not opposed to contraceptives,” Benton told her. “In fact, our current health plan includes birth control pharmaceuticals. However, we do not believe [Plan B and Ella] are contraceptives but pharmaceuticals that are disguised as a means to abort a child.”

Here’s coverage at The College Fix and National Review.


Tom Hoopes is writer in residence at Benedictine College in Atchison, Kan., where he teaches in the Journalism and Mass Communications department and edits the college’s Catholic identity speech digest, The Gregorian.

    I’m confused. Why would a contraceptive (i.e., a pill that is contra-conception) cause an abortion? What it does is prevent CONCEPTION. Ella and Plan B don’t work if you’re already pregnant, and they don’t and can’t damage a fertilized egg.
    You can’t have an abortion if you haven’t conceived a child – that’s just nonsensical.

    What I don’t get is why places like CCU don’t divest from Medicare or sue the government over Medicare. After all, why pay into the same pharmaceutical companies that produce Plan B and Ella? The government increased this funding by $1.1 trillion in the early 2000’s, and no one said peep.
