Love this essay by Ryan Messmore at the The Foundry. The entire essay is linked at the title, "Obama Fails to Empower People"

By forcing groups to offer health plans that cover abortion-inducing drugs, contraception, and sterilization, the mandate damages many mediating structures by stripping them of their ability to live according to their convictions. It gives unprecedented power to the federal government to dictate how social institutions must behave. It basically attempts to remake civil society in the government’s own image, leaving no room for institutions guided by moral convictions that differ from those of the President.

Yeah. It's all about freedom.
