Is This Just the First of Many?

Franciscan University of Steubenville Drops Student Health Insurance

Thank goodness that now students can stay on their parents' health insurance! A much more economical and sensible alternative for everyone. If a private institution wants to prohibit some forms of medicines for its own members, that is fine, but it is ridiculous to expect non-Catholic employees and students to follow guidelines that they do not believe in.

Uh...but it's okay to force Catholics and other people of faith to pay for abortions and sex change operations that they don't believe in. Sounds like you only believe in freedom to choose for people who believe the way you do.

No, I think that if an institution serves ONLY members of that faith (i.e. - some Hasidic Jewish hospitals) that is fine. The problem is when you want to appeal to a greater populace to use your services. This college only has about 200 out of 3500 students who use the health plan, most likely because others felt it less economical or too restrictive.
