There's an interesting debate about religion and health care insurance reform that has nothing to do with abortion, sort of.

A small town NY paper is reporting that the Amish have an exception from purchasing health care. According to the Watertown Daily Times, the Amish "generally rely upon a community ethic that disdains government assistance. Families rely upon one another, and communities pitch in to help neighbors pay health care expenses."
