Faith Matters in Maine Update – February 22, 2016
Heard every Thursday on WHCF 88.5, Hodgdon/Houlton 93.7, Presque Isle 102.7; on WFST in Caribou at 5:20 pm and WTME in Lewiston/Auburn 780 and 1450 AM at 9:29 am and 1:29 pm M-F
Most of our churches in Maine are pretty small, so my guess is the vast majority of of our church staffs do not include a business manager or human resource director. I mention this because I would assume that very few churches have checked to see whether or not the health insurance they offer to their employees includes abortion services.
I urge Maine’s church leaders to check with their providers and ask if any of their premiums are funding abortion services. Churches in California are presently being forced against their First Amendment rights to include abortion services in their health insurance coverage plans. While they are fighting this battle and standing up against this unjust law, should we use ignorance as an excuse to compromise on the sanctity of life?
