Here are 100 great companies and non-profits that fought ObamaCare

The National Organization for Women calls them “The Dirty 100.” You might call them the Hundred Heroes. The pro-abortion feminist group released a list of 100 organizations that have filed lawsuits against the HHS mandate of the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as ObamaCare.

That provision requires all but a narrowly defined group of religious organizations to provide contraception, sterilization, and abortifacient drugs to their employees with no co-pay. The Supreme Court ruled that the HHS mandate violates the Religious Freedom Restoration Act last month in a 5-4 decision.

NOW made headlines by naming the Little Sisters of the Poor one of the “Dirty 100.” Also on the list are several Catholic diocese, the archbishop of Miami, several evangelical Christian universities, and the ministry of Dr. James Dobson.

Less reported was the fact that NOW likened the ecumenical belief that it is wrong to participate in potentially abortion-inducing “contraceptive” practices with slavery, apartheid, and…the ecumenical belief that marriage is between one man and one woman:

[T]here are some “beliefs,” no matter how sincerely held, that should simply not be respected by the United States government or by any government. A “belief” that works to the detriment of a specific demographic group that has historically been subjected to discrimination and oppression is simply a religious mask for bigotry. The world has rejected the religious “beliefs” that were offered to justify the apartheid regime in South Africa. Our nation long ago rejected the Southern Baptist Association’s religious “belief” in slavery and segregation. And more recently, the religious “beliefs” offered up in 2008 to justify California’s Proposition 8 banning same-sex marriage are now being roundly rejected. So it should be with the “belief” that women can be singled out for restrictions on their access to preventive health care like contraception. (We note that Catholic doctrine considers vasectomy a sin, but the Catholic bishops have not been walking up and down the halls of Congress, or orchestrating federal lawsuits, to demand the government create special rules blocking men’s access to that procedure.)

The feminist group encourages people to “[s]tand with NOW and tell them it is not acceptable for employers to impose their personal beliefs on their employees.” You may wish to keep these groups in mind when making your business, college, or donation plans.
