No contraception coverage based on religious beliefs of boss? What's next? They believe Aids is punishment for homosexuality, so they'll deny medication to Aids patients? They find smoking is a sin, so refuse lung cancer treatment? We as Americans need a new Supreme court! In the meantime, boycott Hobby Lobby! #notmybossbusiness#hobbylobby
These 11 senators and 4 congressmen filed a brief in support of Hobby Lobby's belief that for-profit companies should be able to make health care decisions for their employees. In other words, your boss gets to decide whether you get birth control and/or what type the doctor should use. usat.ly/1aFMr1y
"That’s approximately how far the abortion rate fell among a group of women in St. Louis when birth control was simply given away for free. The drop in the teen birth rate: 81%. A study by Washington Uni. 9,000 women — many of whom were poor or uninsured — were offered a choice of contraceptives at no cost. Most ended up getting IUDs or other implants, which are the most effective options are also usually quite expensive. But the drop in unwanted pregnancies more than made up for the expense."
You know what bugs me about this? That’s George (H.W.) Bush holding that umbrella. He was president 1981-1989. Do you get that? It means that the right have not budged an inch on their ridiculous pro-fetus, anti-actual-persons position in THIRTY YEARS. We should not still be having this argument! Thirty year old political cartoons should be bafflingly opaque, not crystal clear!
