Obama Lucky on Catholic Contraceptive Ruling

Obama speaks about the economy on July 11, 2011.(Richard A. Bloom)

February 7, 2012

Given the choice between lucky and smart, most times I'll choose lucky. And in requiring that Catholic institutions like hospitals and colleges offer their employees a health insurance policy that includes birth control, the Obama administration has been lucky, not smart.

Lucky, because the controversy has been more than partially obscured by a similar flap over the actions of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation. The group's decision (since retracted) to cease funding for Planned Parenthood seemed to ratify, at a pivotal moment, the argument made by the White House and its supporters: that women's reproductive rights remain under fire.
