Q. 1. At my working place, the only insurance coverage that is available covers abortion and sterilization. As a Catholic, does that mean that I cannot sign up for any insurance coverage?
A. 1. Considering that your employment place only provides insurance coverage from a firm that offers abortion and sterilization, over and above the other medical coverage that you need for yourself and your family, you are allowed to sign up for the insurance. Your intent is for medical coverage that meet your family needs, not to pay for abortion or sterilization.
In the meantime, you may wish to look around for another insurance company that offers medical coverage that excludes abortion and sterilization. Based on today's trends in society, it will be next to impossible to find such an insurance company.
