Reminder: Hobby Lobby Provides Coverage for 16 Types of Contraception

After today's Supreme Court ruling in favor of Hobby Lobby, the left and Democrats are predictably claiming the 5-4 decision bans contraception for women.

That claim is completely false. Not to mention, Hobby Lobby itself provides coverage of 16 different types of contraception to its employees.

It’s really about, shhhhhhh, abortion.

The ‘morning after’ abortion pill.

Libs want Christians to have to pay for killing babies.

Hoping that decision coming up next week torpedoes ObamaCare.

The Libs maintain they are nothing but beautiful children who care nothing about facts and laws as long as it makes them feel good.

Therefore, the time has come.

The stupidest part is that, in the end, there is no reason that any woman would lose their coverage of free pills.

The ACA requires all insurers to meet the “standards” set by government, which now includes the mandate.

So the insurers for HL and Wheaton also have the “obligation”. They just don’t have the authority to do so, because they are not “plan administrators”.

The form the government was trying to get the companies to fill out designated plan administrators so the government could impose the requirement and give the tax breaks.

But the court ruled that the RFRA allows them to modify the rule, so the government can ASSUME the insurers are the plan administrators for this purpose, once a company has opted out through certification.

I get so tired of this. Why? How is contraception somehow “health care?”

If I were an employer, I would select an insurance plan that covered neither contraceptives nor ED drugs. THAT is the employer keeping his nose out of the bedroom.

On Tuesday, 24 hours after the Democrats started screaming, the court remanded for reconsideration in the light of Hobby Lobby three cases that did involve birth control. Those cases will extend the decision to birth control.

But, here’s where the left goes completely bonkers in overstating its case: the court isn’t PROHIBITING anything, they’re simply saying employers who are closely held corporations and have strong religious objections to birth control don’t have to pay for it. The only “right” that’s being removed is the newly invented right to have somebody else pay for your pills.

It's no more "health care" than plastic surgery is. Less, actually, because contraceptives and sterilization break something that's working right, rather than fixing something that's working incorrectly.

I was thinking it was similar to the removal of my benign skin moles, but it's not: that does no harm. Contraceptives do harm to a healthy body.

Does the obammy healthcare "law":

1) pay for my condoms along with her BC pills? If not, it's discrimination.

2)I'm OK with conception prevention means, but not abortificants (did I get that word right?), but why should a healthcare plan have to pay for it? (So the Dems can say they are doing something for "women's rights").

Trim down healthcare plans to paying for routine physicals and immunizations. Offer expansion riders for other medical issues (births, broken bones, stitches, etc.)

“It’s really about, shhhhhhh, abortion.

And both are about covering up incest and statutory rape.

It doesn’t matter how many lollipops you give to liberals, if they don’t get their favorite flavor, it’s tantrum-time.
