Anonymous said: Hi, normally I don't say anything about he stuff you posts cuz I agree with it, but you've got the whole Hobby Lobby thing wrong. They actually have contraception included in their health care coverage, 16 of them in fact, they just did not want to offer 4 that they believe cause abortions, including the morning after pill. Just wanted to give you a heads up about that
I haven’t got “the whole Hobby Lobby thing wrong” actually
Limiting access to contraceptive options increases the rate of abortions, regardless of the other options these companies offer. Especially because some of the options banned (IUDs, for example) is one of the most low maintenance and effective options.
And this decision sets a precedent, treating corporations as people, allowing them to police their employee’s healthcare decisions based on their religious beliefs. No doubt this same logic could be applied to remove contraceptive coverage altogether. What’s stopping this logic from being applied in a whole host of other situations?
Edit: And on top of that, the way they decided which contraceptive methods “cause abortion” was hardly based in science at all. The morning after pill doesn’t work if the egg has already been fertilized, and the same is true for the hormonal IUD they oppose.
