      (CNSNews.com) - Bantering with the audience at a fundraiser in St. Louis  yesterday, President Barack Obama bragged about a new regulation, proposed by  the Department of Health and Human Services, that the U.S. Conference of  Catholic Bishops has denounced as an “unprecedented attack on religious  liberty.”

       

      "Darn right!" an audience member at the fundraiser shouted as Obama  described the regulation.

       

      “Darn tooting!” Obama said back.

       

      The proposed regulation, designed to implement part of Obamacare, will  require all private health plans in the United States to cover sterilizations  and all FDA-approved contraceptives--including those that cause  abortions—without charging any fees or co-pay. These regulations were drawn to  implement a provision in Obama’s health-care law that calls for  all health-care plans to cover “preventive  services.”
