IT is about their choice of faith and selective contraception not you and abortions.


Now there's a guy opinion for ya, on women's birth control rights.

How exactly does this decision affect you?

If its all all supposedly about their faith why does their 401k invest in the same technology?, so its abhorrant to pay for such things but its ok the live out your retirment years on it?..seems like a bunch of bovine scatology to me.

Here's another sticky situation about this ruling that I'm not sure anyone has been looking at. The reason I bring this up is because I've already argued every other possible angle there is but this one I think, so I'm going for a new approach.

Hobby Lobby the Corp. takes on the Religious Beliefs of it's "Closely Held Owners", correct. This is one of the ways in which Corporate Persons now are allowed Religious Rights. As we all know they are also given other "Natural Rights" just like other Natural Persons as well, such as Free Speech, Property Rights, etc. So if that is the case, shouldn't it also then be "Responsible" by those same terms??? What I mean by that is, since the Owners and the Corp. are now linked in their Beliefs and their "Persons" together, if someone sues Hobby Lobby, shouldn't it's owners now be liable to it as well???

Why should the Corporation which takes on the Beliefs of the owners not also take on the responsibilities and obligations as well???

This goes deeper than this still but I'll start here to see what kind of responses I get....

These types of personal moral debates are common. In the matter of insurance, should the government be forcing its more liberal social beliefs on private businesses? And what about religious institutions? For example, should the Catholic Church be forced to pay for an insurance plan for its employees that covers emergency contraception?


Sadly, NOW, one of the nation’s largest pro-abortion lobbies, has taken it too far. It has labeled the 100 entities that filed the lawsuit against the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate the “Dirty 100.” Included are Catholic orders of nuns, priest groups, and entire dioceses.

When did the war for women become the war against nuns? This is a pathetic ploy by NOW to gain notoriety in the Obamacare debate. The Little Sisters of the Poor, a religious institute for women who have dedicated themselves to the care of the elderly, the impoverished and the aged poor, now has a place on the Dirty 100 list.

Justice Anthony Kennedy noted that the government can pay for this coverage if it wants to make it available, but cannot force a company to do so. I couldn’t agree more. This is a country of religious liberty.


If the National Organization for Women had any class, it would understand that there is a difference between fighting for a principle and being extremist.

i think he summed it up pretty well.

For those of you unfamiliar with how, until the 1990s, Ireland dealt with unmarried mothers and their children, here it is: the women were incarcerated in state-funded, church-run institutions called mother and baby homes or Magdalene asylums, where they worked to atone for their sins. Their children were taken from them.

Of course the Catholic Church and the Vatican are against women's reproductive rights and contraception. They've been making money, hand over fist, for hundreds of years by stealing and selling babies and enslaving young women and orphans. You can't teach a "old dog new tricks" and a "bad tree never bears sweet fruit".

you do not have it straight.

Catholics do not want to be forced to pay for abortificants.

Once you understand that you will have it straight.

Which will never happen cause you twist it to your blind perspective.

I am a Catholic and have refused to become insured under obamacare for that reason.

Are you at the child bearing period of your life?

You'd support them forcing women employees to wear a veil, and have to pay for it themselves?

Catholics, supposedly, are against ALL form of birth control, including condoms. What difference does it make what kind of contraceptive methods prevents pregnancy to Catholics, when they're all equally as bad?

Furthermore, abortificants are not part of the contraceptive mandate, in the first place. Catholics were NEVER asked to pay for abortificants.


American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the American Medical Association, [disagree.]

“A pregnancy exists once a fertilized embryo has implanted in the uterus. Prior to that implantation, we do not have a viable pregnancy,” said Dr. Barbara Levy, vice president for health policy for the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.

Levy’s group argues that emergency contraception “cannot prevent implantation of a fertilized egg,” and that it is “not effective after implantation; therefore, it is not an abortifacient.”

Drugs such as RU-486 or methotrexate combined with misoprostol were designed specifically to bring a medical end to a pregnancy and are clearly abortifacient. But those are not contraceptives, Levy said, and they’re not included in the mandate.

I work in a job where I am forced to wear long sleeved shirts out side all year long. And steel towed boots and a hardhat. Gloves. Eye protection.
Sonic employees are forced to wear uniforms.
police are forced to wear certain clothes as are doctors nurses and most other professions.
so yes forced to do certain things that the job requires, you bet.

So what is your point?

If the women dont like the contraceptives that HL provides they can either pay for those they want or go get a job elsewhere.

would you prefer to wear just a pair of shorts, tee shirt, and flip flops or would you consider that as being just a tad dangerous???
would wearing a veil on your job also increase the danger? Seems to me that common sense should over ride in many cases!

"If the women dont like the contraceptives that HL provides they can either pay for those they want or go get a job elsewhere."

isn't that kind of like if hobby lobby didn't want to provide birth control to it's employees they could have just paid the fine??
so going back to the veil thing.
I guess if you find that wearing a veil on your job is endangering you..you can just find another job??

Women used to have to wear high heels for many jobs when I was younger. I have had problems with my feet since I was born (almost ended up having to wear braces.) Many of my career options were removed from me because I would not wear the high heels!
of course if you are a man many of those dress codes weren't that burdensome to yous!
while the litte girls waded through snow drifts up to their arse in dresses you got to have your legs covered!
your shoes didn't make you walk on your toes!!
and slapping on a ton of poisonous chemicals on your face wasn't required!

historically, women were hindered in many ways in an attempt to keep them at home where they belong. Burdensome clothing was one of those ways!

So if you enter an establishment owned by a Muslim, the owner has every right to demand that your wife/gf be covered and you must have a beard. Ludicrous at best.

Amazing! So you're good with some women being entitled to more equality under the law than others. I guess those are Catholic morals.
