U.S. Senate Candidate Mark Neumann is traveling around Wisconsin in opposition to President Obama’s health care law, which the US Supreme Court is anticipated to rule within the next week.
On Wednesday, Neumann spoke at St. Vincent Hospital in Green Bay, WI. He said that he does not agree with a provision that requires the majority of health plans to cover contraceptives for women with no charge.
This provision does exempt certain religious institutions that meet specific criteria. A compromise has been considered by the Obama Administration for other religious associated organizations where sharing religious beliefs are not the primary focus, but people who have different faiths may be hired. In these instances, it would be paid for by the insurance companies. This idea is unwanted by many religious groups, such as the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
