The National Catholic Bioethics Center has published an analysis saying that it will be immoral for a Catholic who owns a private business to purchase health insurance for his or her workers under Obamacare and its implementing regulations–which mandate that insurance plans bought by businesses and individuals must cover sterilizations and all Food and Drug Administration-approved contraceptives, including those that can cause abortions.

“Dropping all coverage appears to be the most morally sound approach,” the Catholic ethicists concluded.

They further said that Catholics have an affirmative duty to oppose the Obamacare mandate.

“Most importantly,” they wrote, “we are impelled to recall the distinct moral obligation of all persons of conscience, and especially Catholics, to resist unjust laws.

“This duty was outlined explicitly by our Holy Father, Pope John Paul II, in his encyclical Evangelium vitae: ‘There is no obligation in conscience to obey such laws; instead there is a grave and clear obligation to oppose them by conscientious objection. … In the case of an intrinsically unjust law … it is therefore never licit to obey it, or to ‘take part in a propaganda campaign in favour of such a law, or vote for it’”
