Crossing Obamacare

Peter Wright

The Oklahoma City-based chain stepped into the political fray late last year with a controversial lawsuit against the Affordable Care Act (ACA), a case that has garnered praise from some of the most prominent evangelical figures in the country.

Thanks for publishing that great commentary (Sept. 11, Gazette) titled “Contraception empowers women” by Ryan Kiesel. Kiesel said that Oklahoma legislators passed an amendment to “limit access to emergency contraception in Oklahoma.” Limiting access to emergency contraception would undoubtedly mean more unintended pregnancies, thus the likelihood of more abortions — abortions which these same legislators fanatically oppose! What a revolting development!
