This blog started out as a companion piece to my book, Musings from the Christian Left (excerpts of which can be found in the July 2004 link) and to support a planned radio show. Now, its simply a long term writing project from a Christian Left Libertarian perspective (meaning I often argue for liberty within the (Catholic) Church, rather than liberty because the church takes care of a conservative view of morality.

Garnett Responds to MSW on HHS | National Catholic Reporter

Garnett Responds to MSW on HHS | National Catholic Reporter by MSW.  MGB: The conscience rights of employees are the same as their privacy rights under Griswold v. Connecticut.  Employers have not business taking the place of the state in attempting to deny birth control, especially as the state may not do so and the offering of insurance is now done under state agency.  Indeed, without some kind of legal exception based in the Constitution, it is likely that a private employer could constitutionally deny birth control coverage without violating the employee's privacy rights.  Period and end of discussion.
