Videos- Democratic Rep., Kathy Hochul, Booed By Constituents For Supporting Obama's Abortion Mandate

By Susan Duclos

Democratic Representative Kathy Hochul (NY) was booed at her own town hall meeting over her support for Obama's abortion mandate which has religious groups and members outraged over the Obamacare mandate which would force religious institutions to provide access to insurance that covers contraceptives, as well as sterilization and abortion-inducing drugs.

Two videos below, one where Hochul expresses that she is not concerned over the constitutionality of the abortion mandate and another with her deliberate attempt to mislead her constituents.

The other via Hot Air and below it is Ed Morrissey's explanation of Hochul's ignorance and/or her willful lies to those she was elected to represent.


Update: This claim from Hochul is categorically false:

“We’re not gonna agree on this one. I’m gonna tell you that I will stand for our religious freedoms. But I don’t see a conflict here. Now that there’s been an accommodation that says religious institutions do not have to provide these services. So we’re just going to have to disagree on that.”

They still have to provide insurance to their employees that includes free contraception and abortifacients. Who pays for the insurance? The religious organizations that get forced to facilitate those transactions, since they can no longer opt out of offering the insurance and must pay a large part of the premiums — and in some cases, the religious organizations self-insure, which means the money comes directly out of their pockets rather than indirectly. Either way, they most certainly still do have to “provide these services.” Hochul either is woefully misinformed or willfully lying to her constituents.
