Todd Wilken’s last question

August 3rd, 2011

Issues Etc host Todd Wilken’s last question to me was, “If you had 30 seconds to talk to HHS Secretary Kathleen Sibelius, what would you say to her?” (This was regarding the requirement (which is simultaneously silly and offensive) that all insurance carriers provide contraception with no co-pay.) I simply said,

“You need to go to confession, girlfriend!”

    And confess what?

    I always thought that insurance was meant to cover extraordinary expenses which cannot be adequately saved for nor paid for from one’s normal income, not ordinary, recurring expenses. What’s next, grocery insurance, clothing insurance, cable-TV insurance? This is a prime example for why our health care insurance costs are so high. Too many people want to have everything imaginable covered by someone else. However, if they insist, then I would reluctantly go along with health insurers covering the cost of instruction for Natural Family Planning for married couples or couples about to be married.

    I’m guessing that wouldn’t be acceptable to the advocates, now would it? And tells you all you need to know about there true motives.

    It is ironic that the point of contraception is to prevent a primary use of the procreative power. Society has grown and developed in part because of all the people on this planet, not in spite of it!

    Huh? This statement doesn’t make any sense whatsoever. Do you even know if she’s Catholic or not? And if she is, what “sin” would she need to confess?

    Kathleen Sibelius is Catholic. Using and promoting birth control is the sin.

    Then I have even more respect for Secretary Sibelius for putting her religious beliefs aside in favor of a socially advantageous health policy.
