Any president that thinks the country should have the power to force a group to act immorally is not someone I will vote for. I don't have to be religious to see the future implications from a precedent like that.
I seem to remember instances where repub governments put pressure on educational institutions to cancel Planned Parenthood education by threatening to withhold funding, and other similar tactics to enforce the republican view. Things that most dems would consider immoral. Were you just as incensed then, or is your moral outrage strictly situational?
I told my kids, "Someday, you'll have kids of your own." One of them said, "So will you."
