Oh I see it is just that exclusion for his religious beliefs.
So is that where the line gets drawn.
Remember when I asked if there was a line, where the line was and what determines the line?
Can you not see the reason why they are pushing for just this much? Wasn't information posted that there are some financial backers helping with this suit?
I believe they are trying to move the line and set a legal precedent to continue moving the line so in fact this case is about birth control and it is solely based on religious grounds which makes it absolutely imperative why the exception cannot be made.
This is how laws are chipped away or at least how they are trying to chip this one away. I am just glad that this is covered in the original tenents of the constitution. Our forefathers were so very wise.

Since when is it your employers job to worry about of even know what kind of medical procedures their employees and their doctors choose? They have made this decision and this decision is their fault.
Just a small point here. It is not happening. This would be a HOAX. And an older one.They are not closing any stores and they are not planning on closing any stores. Starting two years ago when people started spreading this Hobby Lobby began saying it was not true. They are in fact opening more and more stores. They also wish people would quit saying they are closing as it is bad for business.
“That is not going to happen. That is on the Internet with my name supposedly signed to it, but we’re not planning on shutting any stores down,” Green said.

So, focus on just the abortion statement, but avoid the other.
How convenient and typical of your retorts.
You are a Hypocrite.
You and other 0bama backers, piss and moan about not wanting the Govt to meddle in your lives, in regards to abortion, yet are perfectly fine with the Govt meddling when it comes to stealing taxes and forcing companies to go against what they want to do.
It really truly is always different for you and Progressives.

They are not taking away there rights, they are simply saying they will not pay for these things. IMO.

I love Hobby Lobby but I think this person is a bit nuts.
They don't want to pay for contraception but yet they do. They pay their employees so in a round about way they ARE paying for contraception when employees they paid buy it themselves.
Why do people have to bring religion into everything. So they are going to lay off hundreds of workers because if their personal beliefs? I think business and ones religious beliefs should not be in the same category. Leave it at the door!

Did the Govt, or did it not, mandate companies to have insurance that includes birth control???
