By on 2.13.12 | 1:25PM

Ron Paul has issued a pretty tough statement on the Obama administration's contraception mandate:

Obamacare apologists cannot abide any religious philosophy that promotes large, two parent, nuclear, heterosexual families and frowns on divorce and abortion. Because the political class hates these values, it feels compelled to impose -- by force of law -- its preferred vision of society: single parents are noble; birth control should be encouraged at an early age; and abortion must be upheld as an absolute moral right.

Paul also notes that some Catholic leaders supported Obamacare.
