Mandate politics: Nuns vs. the state
Why? The administration and its supporters scream, “Women’s rights!” But the mandate is not about women’s rights. It is entirely about electoral politics.

The Little Sisters and other Catholic employers are being forced to commit what they view as a sin for one purpose: to get Democrats elected. They are political pawns.
