Hobby Lobby Suite Makes Sense

Posted on April 4, 2014


I am compelled to write about the Hobby Lobby case before the U.S. Supreme Court.

The real question is whether employers should be required to pay for employee’s contraceptives and abortions. Hobby Lobby, the Catholic Church, Little Sisters of the Poor and similar petitioners are not telling women that they cannot have these products and procedures. It is rather that they object to paying for them as a matter of religious conscience.

Birth control is not part of health care per se, and those corporations and employees whose religious view it a wrong should not be forced to pay for it.

Those women wanting to practice birth control (and heaven knows that is better than abortion) can just go to the store and buy it. No one else should be burdened to pay for your personal responsibility.

The issue of contraception is just one of the reasons the Republicans want to repeal the Affordable Care Act, and this will not happen; however, those parts in the Affordable Care Act that are not related to health care should be eliminated.
