Women's health needs should be available through their insurance -- same as men's health needs should be available through insurance -- if the corporation provides insurance.
With respect to an insured health plan, including a student health plan, the non-profit religious organization provides notice to its insurer that it objects to contraception coverage. The insurer then notifies enrollees in the health plan that it is providing them separate no-cost payments for contraceptive services for as long as they remain enrolled in the health plan.
Similarly, with respect to self-insured health plans, the non-profit religious organization provides notice to its third party administrator that objects to contraception coverage. The third party administrator then notifies enrollees in the health plans that it is providing or arranging separate no-cost payments for contraceptive services for them for as long as they remain enrolled in the health plan.
Administration issues final rules on contraception coverage and religious organizations
Yet moments before they adjourned for their summer recess, the justices proved they can act quite quickly and recklessly when it comes to violating the terms of a controversial opinion they handed down only days earlier. It’s as if the loaner car the court gave us in the Hobby Lobby ruling broke down mere blocks from the shop.
the court pointed to a workaround in the law for nonprofits: If there are religious objections to a medical treatment, third parties will provide coverage to the employees.
Yet in an unsigned emergency order granted Thursday evening, the very same court said that this very same workaround it had just praised was also unconstitutional, that this workaround also burdened the religious freedom of religious employers. Overnight, the cure has become the disease. Having explicitly promised that Hobby Lobby would go no further than Hobby Lobby, the court went back on its word, then skipped town for the summer.

Again where are you getting this from?...an owner with religious values can reflect those values in the way he runs his company. But he's not a king, he can't demand that his subjects follow the same religion. More than half the US is women, this ruling just made every company be able to control whether or not female workers can have access to contraceptives in their health care plan. Whether the owner is Christian or not, it would be foolish for a company to not save the money and so women across the country will soon not be able to have access to contraceptives, whether they're religious or not.
PS: No one wants to do business in the US because it costs too much, not whatever fairy tale reason you were thinking of.
HL health care plan DOES pay for contraceptives. Just not the morning after pill and abortions. So its not like HL is acting like it thinks people are not having sex or anything "prudish" and old fashioned.
Just not the morning after pill and abortions.

Then you are debating at a handicap with a closed mind and failing to be truly "DIVERSIVE" in your expression,relegating ANYTHING you would say as only subjective ,unless one is a feminist as well.
PART of coverage has been removed not all of it.

What do you mean "I finally discovered that"? This is like the 3rd time I've posted this info FOR YOU, in so many threads!
But what can the HHS do ?
Are they in panic mode now ?
The ACA must have something in it.
The highest court in the American government is forcing women to be subjected to religious rule.
No "Religious" laws have been created by the Court.
But HHS made the initial rulings establishing exemptions.
Those were unConstitutional.
But then again, they ruled that the rules against for-profit companies can now include religious exemptions.
