Pro-Abortion Group: ‘Male Justices’‘Direct Attack on Women’ in Hobby Lobby Case
CNS News ^ | 6/30/14 | Penny Starr

Posted on 06/30/2014 7:10:35 PM PDT by marshmallow

Condemnation came fast and furious following the Supreme Court ruling on Monday that said the Affordable Care Act’s contraceptive and sterilization mandate is unlawful because it infringes on the religious liberty of the business owners who object to providing abortion-inducing drugs to employees.

"Today's decision from five male justices is a direct attack on women and our fundamental rights,” Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, said in a statement issued after the 5/4 decision on Monday. “This ruling goes out of its way to declare that discrimination against women isn't discrimination.”

"Allowing bosses this much control over the health-care decisions of their employees is a slippery slope with no end,” Hogue said. “Every American could potentially be affected by this far-reaching and shocking decision that allows bosses to reach beyond the boardroom and into their employees' bedrooms.”

“Moments ago, the Supreme Court issued a ruling that will take birth control out of the hands of women who need it,” said the email, which was signed by PPFA President Cecile Richards. “Their decision gives employers the power to deny women the new birth control benefits of the Affordable Care Act — allowing bosses to force their personal beliefs on employees.”

Wrong, Ms. Richards. You will not be denied birth control. The ruling only means that we don't have to pay for it.

Have you seen some of these “gals”? Most aren’t going to be in need of birth control of any type. They have a natural built in case.

So many news stories have this story wrong. Hobby Lobby already provides some birth control for their employees.

What they were objecting to was the mandate that Obamacare issued that was against their family faith since they are a “closely held” family company.

This doesn’t apply to big corporations. I really think a Catholic source would get the story straight.

Speaking of abortion, the states have never amended the Constitution to expressly protect the so-called right to an abortion. Such a "right" was wrongly legislated from the bench by activist justices imo.

And the reason that justices got away with their decision is because parents are not making sure that their children are being taught the difference between legislative and judicial powers.

All this ruling does is stop companies from having to fund abortifacients. Hobby Lobby’s current insurance covers 16 types of birth control. They objected only to abortifacients.

Where is leadership when you need it/them? Is there anyone man or woman enough to tell Ilyse, "JUST SHUT UP!"? Since when does some radical, leftist group have the right to tell any employer it HAS to provide any service to its employees. Seems like Facism to me.

Case goes the liberal, evil way, lots of rejoicing from the left.

Case goes the conservative, righteous way, near-riots break out.

Here, I'll do it, "Ilyse, JUST SHUT UP!

The Left would have you believe that this opinion was all about contraception. But it wasn’t. It was about abortifacients masquerading as contraception, and whether or not government can force folks to pay for those they employ to destroy their posterity. Of course, what it, and all cases like it, should be about, actually, is the immorality, unconstitutionality, and illegality of the murder of ANY person via chemical or surgical means. While I’m glad that the owners of Hobby Lobby aren’t being forced to violate their own consciences, the question must be asked, where is the outrage against the even more egregious violation of the right to equal protection for the right to life for these millions of helpless little persons in the womb?

Glad someone sees this. The Green family doesn’t want to pay for abortifacients. That’s the only class of contraceptives involved here. They do pay for lots of other coverage of contraceptives.

In my post I was referring to Roe vs Wade. Ginsburg herself stated (when it was too late) it was a flawed decision.

I was addressing a previous post; not commenting on the Hobby Lobby decision specifically.

Ilyse Hogue, a social change practitioner, media consumer and analyst, and online engagement expert, is the president of NARAL Pro-Choice America. Previously, she served as Co-Director of Friends of Democracy, a 2012 initiative to build political power around the issue of money in politics and as Senior Adviser to Media Matters for America where she focused on advocacy programs to undercut the power of right-wing media. From 2006- 2011, Ilyse was Director of Political Advocacy and Communications for MoveOn.org.

Prior to joining MoveOn, Ilyse was Program Director at the Rainforest Action Network, where she spent six years pioneering and implementing corporate advocacy campaigns in the banking, forest, and other sectors. She was the recipient of the Business Ethics Network award in 2005 for her work in the financial sector, a campaign that was ultimately instrumental in moving over 60 multinational banks to adopt a groundbreaking framework of environmental standards for private investment known as the Equator Principles. These principles led to a host of voluntary initiatives in the US banking sector, including from Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, JP Morgan Chase and Bank of America. Ilyse was the chief negotiator in each of those agreements and worked to market them to a spectrum of constituencies, from institutional investors to environmental NGOs. A Harvard Business School case study was written in 2005 about this work, and she has lectured on it at Yale and Columbia. She has been a frequent speaker and writer about corporate power, corporate accountability and multi-national institutions that govern financial and corporate behavior. Ilyse was very involved in the global justice movement, traveling from Seattle to South Africa and many places in between working with international allies on corporate power. She is the co-founder of smartMeme Strategy and Training project which works to amplify the impact of grassroots organizing with new strategy and training resources, values based communications, collaborations, and meme campaigning. Ilyse serves on the board of Rebuild the Dream, Oil Change International, Story of Stuff, and National Domestic Worker’s Alliance. Ilyse holds an M.S. in Resource Ecology Management from the University of Michigan where she studied the impact of resource constraints in politics and culture. Her BA is from Vassar College.

Ilyse Hogue, a social change practitioner, media consumer and analyst, and online engagement expert ...

Fascinating description. I could use it.

I'm a social change practitioner: I go around with a gang of little children, acting rather weird.

I'm a media consumer and analyst: I read books and watch programs, write about my opinions, and engage in discussions.

I'm an online engagement expert: I have lots of FRiends with whom I engage online every day (unless the Interwebs iz borked), and I also email my mother.

Perhaps Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America should explain why *I* should buy *her* birth control when she isn’t even throwing me a piece[*} once in a while? Heck, when is the last time her kind *thanked* taxpayers for buying her pills?

Inquiring minds want to know.

The real cause of their anger at once simple and yet profound: staurophobia.

Staurophobia is the pathological fear/hatred of the Cross, especially of Him Who it represents.

The word comes from the Greek “stauron” (cross) and phobia which is an irrational fear.

I did not coin the word; another poster did; but the term brilliantly describes what the real issue is with clinical preciseness.

Who knows maybe it will be picked up by the folks who edit the DSM and used to describe a new, yet very old, pathology.
