"That the U.S. Congress would be so callous as to add this kind of provision - that affects only poor women in the most extreme circumstances - is outrageous," said Frances Kissling, president of Catholics for a Free Choice.

Kissling said she was heartened by developments in some states - such as a California Supreme Court ruling that Catholic Charities of Sacramento must provide birth control options in its employee health plan. "But for women in conservative states, that's no help," she said.
