anchor-and-hope asked: Opening up a can of worms. Here we go: Blast me for being a man, but your "response" to that post is just "idiotic." Of course there are other uses for birth control. But get it through your biased skull that Hobby Lobby OFFERS BIRTH CONTROL COVERAGE and is only objecting to IUD's and "morning after" alternatives. Please quit acting like these, or birth control in general have existed forever, aren't a luxury and are some how an inane right. It's idiotic.
1. The post you’re referring to wasn’t a response to the Hobby Lobby case. It was in response to an “article” posted on Facebook that told women they should just stop having sex, AKA the “stop being a slut and making everyone pay for it” argument.
2. Thanks, but I know the facts of the Hobby Lobby case and I’ve never tried to claim otherwise. My “biased skull” understands that they object to “drugs and devices that end human life after conception.” Therefore my “biased skull” understands that the Greens (owners of Hobby Lobby) and their allies don’t understand how the so-called “morning after” pill or IUDs work. At all. Personally I don’t believe that a woman’s access to contraceptives should be in any way affected by their employer which is what the ACA attempts to protect against.
3. The Hobby Lobby case is not really about religious freedom, but about corporate personhood. The question before the court is whether the Religious Freedom Restoration Act which was designed to protect individuals can be applied to for-profit companies.
4. As the UN and other international organizations have established family planning is a human right. This is not only a health issue, but an economic issue. When woman have access to birth control and other family planning tools they are healthier and more economically stable.
