Do women have a "right" to free contraception?

I have seen some good things in the Obama health care plan. But the recent debate over contraception points out questions about the basic legality of some of the plan.
I refer to the feverish debate over reproductive care for women. I think ordering Catholic organizations to offer free birth control coverage for women employees is simply wrong. This seems to me to be a violation of the First Amendment to the Constitution. Government is ordering religion to do something that is against the church’s basic beliefs. That’s a violation of the separation of church and state.
I’ve heard a lot of talk about women’s “rights” to contraception. It’s not in the United States Constitution; therefore I don’t think any woman has a “right” to birth control at government and taxpayer expense. A woman has the freedom to practice birth control, but there is nothing “right” about demanding that insurance companies, employers, or taxpayers provide it to her.

Our thought for today is from Harry Weinberger:
 
“The greatest right in the world is the right to be wrong.”
