The Global Gag Rule states that foreign nongovernmental organizations cannot receive U.S. family planning aid if they counsel women about abortion, provide abortions, or advocate for safe abortion care--even with their own money.

It seems hypocritical on the face of it , to disallow these countries family planning aid if they even counsel their clients on it, given the propensity of our own female population to murder their children in such a manner. However, if it keeps any of our money from killing children in these countries then it seems a small price to pay.

Supreme Court Justices, Scalia, Thomas, Roberts, Kennedy, Alito, Sotomayor, are Catholic. Will they recuse themselves on the ACA contraceptive mandate case?

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops is a powerful lobbying organization that uses undue influence on U.S. policies.
They have no business doing this, but they have the political "connections"... even tho they don't actually represent the majority of Catholic laity in the U.S., or even the more progressive Priests and Nuns. Catholic women use Birth Control at about the same rate as non-Catholic women, in fact a percentage point or two higher than the average. Catholic women have Abortions also at about the same rate - one in three women - and Catholics favor Gay Marriage at a slightly HIGHER percent than non-Catholics in the U.S. The USCCB represents the most REACTIONARY elements of the Catholic Church.
It will be interesting to see whether Pope Francis, under the prodding of more PROGRESSIVE Catholics, finds a way for more toleration of Birth Control and Gays in the Church. The fight against Abortion is REALLY a fight against ANY form of Birth Control, a fight against Women being "allowed" by men to CONTROL OUR OWN BODIES...
If it weren't for the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, there would BE no "Gag Rule"...
Let's hope they LOSE their hold on political power, fast, with their MEDIEVAL, MISOGYNIST mind-set...
