The owners of Hobby Lobby have been engaged in a battle with Kathleen Sebelius and HHS over their right to refuse to pay for abortifacients for their employees. Today, the Supreme Court agreed to hear Hobby Lobby’s case:

From PR Newswire:

The nation’s highest court accepted the federal government’s appeal of a June decision by the U.S. Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals that a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) mandate to provide potentially life-terminating drugs and devices in employee insurance plans places a substantial burden on the religious freedoms of Hobby Lobby, which is solely owned by founder David Green and his family.

“This is a major step for the Greens and their family businesses in an important fight for Americans’ religious liberty,” said Kyle Duncan, general counsel of the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty and lead lawyer for Hobby Lobby. “We are hopeful that the Supreme Court will clarify once and for all that religious freedom in our country should be protected for family business owners like the Greens.”

Naturally, the White House is pitching a fit:

And Dems are flipping their lids:

But here’s the thing: Not only are the Dems unjustly outraged that a privately owned company wants to exercise its First Amendment rights, but they’re actively lying about the Hobby Lobby situation:

Bingo:

The Greens and their family businesses – who have no moral objection to providing 16 of the 20 FDA-approved contraceptives required under the HHS mandate and do so at no additional cost to employees under their self-insured health plan – then took the unusual step in October of joining the government in asking the U.S. Supreme Court to review the case, despite the family’s victory in the U.S. Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals. [Emphasis ours.]

So the issue here isn’t the Greens’ refusal to provide employees with birth control. What Democrats have a problem with is that the Greens aren’t willing to compromise their faith in order to bend to the will of the government, which, by the way, should play no role in health care in the first place.

Guess what, Mr. President: Birth control, like the rest of health care, is none of the government’s damn business.

Exactly.

If female employees decide they need birth control, and it isn’t covered by their employer, they can pay for it themselves.

That’s what being empowered is all about, right?

            I would bet paint chips are.

          • DouginCO

            a relative of mine had a heart valve replaced with a pig’s heart valve. Not hard to imagine a Muslim company not wanting to pay for that.

        • Joe W.

          What prescription contains pork? Got an example? And the only people I am aware of that object to blood transfusions for religious reasons would be Christian Scientists. I doubt that they provide any insurance coverage at all for employees. You make a feeble attempt to try to marginalize Hobby Lobby’s very valid and quite reasonable objection. Not even a good effort. Give it up, Son. It only makes you look stupid.

          • CrowEater

            There are over 1000 medications that contain pork derivatives.

          • Joe W.

            And muzzies are not required to take any of them. You refer to a “Muslim” company. Care to name one? What is a “Muslim” company, anyway? Eating pork does not terminate life, either, so your “analogy” is flawed at it’s inception. Loon.

          • CrowEater

            And Catholic employees of Hobby Lobby aren’t required to take birth control.

            Muslims do own companies, you know. Many in the United States! Do try to keep up.

          • Joe W.

            Name one…or two…And again, Sonny, Hobby Lobby is not having an issue with birth control. They have an issue with ABORTION. DO try to keep up, Sparky.

          • CrowEater

            Name one or two what? Muslim owned companies? Jesus, you’re dense. There are thousands of them!

          • Joe W.

            Not relevant to the issue of this thread. I am aware of Church’s Chicken, etc. And if they have an issue with paying for abortion, I agree with them. Big difference between pork and killing babies, fool.

          • CrowEater

            And again, you’re incorrect. Plan B is not an abortifacient.

          • Joe W.

            In your opinion.

          • CrowEater

            Uh, no. Plan B is not an abortifacient based on science. Though I can see how science would confuse you.

            Are Jehovah’s Witnesses big corporate entrepreneurs too?? You are a comedy in and of yourself, pal. The bottom line is that government has no business in the health care delivery system in the first place. NONE. Companies should be free to cover what they wish. PERIOD.

            How adorable for you to assume I’m Muslim! I wish your family a Happy Thanksgiving. God knows they deserve it for having to put up with your sorry ass.

          • ObamaFail

            You are concerned about slippery slopes, yet you progs fail to see the slippery slope that will come from allowing the government to take away any rights. You scumbags want to force religious people to provide things that are against their religion, which infringes on their right to religion, and if you take that away it becomes a slippery slope that leads to loss of freedom of speech, loss of the right to bear arms, and suddenly people are being imprisoned without trial. So don’t preach about slippery slopes when you are too stupid to care about the ones that matter.

          Didn’t Obamacare already exempt Muslim companies? According to Muslim beliefs, insurance is considered gambling so they are excused but Christians who believe abortion is murder are not exempted!

            It is the baby the most innocent among us who pays the up most and suffers the most during the abortion when the abortionist/doctor either crushes the baby’s head or injects poison directly into the baby’s heart in order to kill the child.The child is murdered under the guise of protecting the health of the women. Can we all agree that a less than fair tradeoff has happened here? How can any party to this destruction of a human life be satisfied about the outcome.

          • Bathing Suit Area

            Why do you guys have to try to make contraception threads all about abortion?

        • TravisJSays

          And what if they did? BFD. Millions of people get NO health insurance at all from their employer. I’m one of them.

          If an employer provides only WhackADoodle Insurance and faith healing instead of real care, get your own health insurance or change your job.

          problem solved and its not even violating the Bill of Rights.

    • carmenta

      you know, surely the onus is on the employee? Just as, if you want your employer to pay for your abortion, you wouldn’t get a job at Hobby Lobby, how hard would it be to find out if blood transfusions are covered by your insurance at a JW or CS privately owned business? Dont like the terms, dont work there!

    • carla5731

      Employers should have a right to offer benefits as they see fit. Likewise, potential employees have a right to agree to those benefits, buy supplemental insurance or look for employment elsewhere.

    If a private insurance company wants to provide birth control and abortions, that’s fine, I have no issue with that. But don’t force people to provide it if they dont want to, especially if for religious reasons.

    Oh, and don’t give me that crap that thr employers have to respect the 1st amendment rights of the employees. And therefore they can’t throw their religion on them. If you work for or attend a school that is Catholic or Christian you should know what you’re getting yourself into.

    Better question: Why do they get to steal my money in order to fund children being murdered?

    • stuckinIL4now

      Are you referring to the double-secret abortion coverage slush fund? If
      you enroll in a federally-subsidized health care plan that covers
      elective abortions, and most plans on the exchanges include it, you are
      required to pay a separate abortion fee of at least $1 per month that
      goes into a federal slush fund to pay for abortion on demand.
      You are not informed that your plan includes that coverage except upon
      enrollment and the $1 is billed separately from the rest of your
      monthly premium.

  • frozeninbemidji

    Birth control should be a woman’s RESPONSIBILITY (new liberals hate that word), not her boss’s

      Better that her boss pay for her abortions than for her to track down the father. What was it that Willie Sutton said about robbing banks?

  • QueenB ✓certifiable

    Here’s the letter both my sister and I received: Yea, we know you have epilepsy and those drugs are super expensive, like $200 – $300 per month. However, we’ve been told that women are too stupid to scrape together $10/month for their birth control, so now you need to meet your deductible before we pay anything for those medications. We do need to actually make money to stay in business, and if we’re out of business you have NO INSURANCE, so this is how we have to make up the difference.

    • carla5731

      This is a very important issue that deserves more attention. The government is putting your life at risk by deciding for you where your health care dollars will be spent. You should be able to buy an insurance plan that meets your needs, not the Democrats’ political goals.

  • waltermitty2012

    GO, HOBBY LOBBY!

  • lesterwink23

    So women should be allowed to make decisions regarding their birth control, but not their doctors or health plans? Got it.

  • http://www.GONINERS.com/ Kristine ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Cripes, I am sick of this crap. I do not need, as a woman, the frakkin’ white house telling me what is “essential” to my healthcare and birth control is definitely NOT “essential”.

    These people all just need to STFU. NO ONE is taking away the access to birth control pills–or anything else. You want it, go pay for it.

    I don’t know the stats but in the cases where the pill is prescribed for health, as for PCOS, then perhaps some sort of exception could be made. Though I’m sure that would be abused.

    Anyway, the fear-mongering by the left on this issue is beyond disgusting. The pill is not being made illegal so just shut up already.

    Oh, and that bit in their statement saying screenings etc are “free of charge”. Stop saying things are free! NOTHING is free! Ugh! So frustrating.

        The right to kill babies because you can’t keep your legs closed isn’t in the Constitution. I guess that’s why you guys hate the right to bear arms so bad. Guns could be used to kill, so because of that fact you feel that the right to kill unborn children should be free to everyone.

    • GaltFan

      I had a grad-level Con Law class way back in the day (1993) and The Prof had some of his brighter peeps square off on some controversial SCOTUS decisions. I was the lucky b*stard who had to make a case for its legality (not voluntary on my part, I wanted nothing to do with it – and he knew it.)

      We all know that the original decision is weak, relying on ‘penumbras and emanations’ and such, but there actually is a solid legal basis for ‘choice’ (yeah, I know, that euphemism gags me too). 4th Amendment arguments aren’t totally specious, but practically so.

      Point one would be Constitutional silence on the issue specifically. There is an old English saying: “That which is not forbidden to the people is allowed, that which is not allowed to the government is forbidden” (many variations, and I paraphrased off the top of my head. Might be Scottish.)

      The more novel argument I came up with did actually rely on the 14th Amendment, though. While it certainly was not written with abortion or “pre-birth” rights in mind, it does state “All persons born…” Rights were legally recognized only after the threshold of successful live birth had been met. Not sure if I was original, but he ran with it thereafter, and ‘personhood’ became his argument.

      I don’t know (and seriously doubt) if I deserve the credit/blame for that line of thinking, but there have been some recent attempts to pass ‘personhood’ amendments and court challenges seeking the same recognition (I don’t follow it closely, just peripherally aware.) They have all failed, and will likely to continue to fail on 14th Amendment grounds going forward.

      Morality, law and religion are all related, but they are not the same thing.

      Your response to WhoDat was a bit lacking. You should have said “You have a right to force to make someone else to pay for your murder of your own child.”

      Being the ‘GaltFan” that I am, I tend to view rights through a prism of liberty vs force and fraud…

      • https://twitter.com/davidjkramer DavidKramer

        Hmmmm, I could argue that the sky is actually a different color, does not make it so.

        This is one of the tactics of law school, argue against reality to be able to defend against reality. I know the tactic, it is to be able to defend something that is not logical, yet that is what your duty is as a lawyer. I understand the sentiment, just does not make it right.

        I understand all variables of the court decisions regarding the orientation of life. I understand all the arguments. I understand the lies that one must tell themselves to be able to be a lawyer………..then I dismiss it all, because I am a human, I cannot or will not ever be a modern lawyer, because I am human…………that is the difference.

        There are humans that practice law, they are subsequently removed of their humanity by the courts, otherwise they are not given their law license.

        Kind of hilarious actually, one must remove their humanity, otherwise they are not allowed to argue “rule of law” within the court system. Still wondering how rule of law has removed the victim.

        • GaltFan

          Meh, I’m not a lawyer. I wanted to be one for a few years (way back) until I understood things such as you have also laid out. I was #1 in that Con-Law class… (that’s kind of like bragging about being the top pick in the seventh round of the NFL draft if I told you where I went to ‘university’)

          I can’t argue for the criminal in fact when I know he/she is guilty. Had to walk away… I can’t lie to myself either.

          Call me a ‘libertarian’ if you will (will you?), but you speak of “all variables of the court decisions regarding the orientation of life” and “dismiss it all, because I am a human”.

          Do you?

          “Give me liberty, or give me death!” – Patrick Henry

          “I don’t agree with what you have to say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it!” (Voltaire, questionable)

          “Possession is 9/10ths of the law” (yes, an aphorism)

          Just curious: Is (legitimately pursued) contract law separate from moral law? IOW… Can a moral compact legitimately be deemed illegal?

          Sorry if I bore you, I find you to be quite interesting. Not many thinkers out there…

          • https://twitter.com/davidjkramer DavidKramer

            Two thumbs up for engaging…….I have this philosophy that would have been appreciated 100s of years ago…….now I am just……….laughed at or mocked.

            Criminal law….you actually need a crime and you need a victim, without either, there is no criminal action………ooops, forgot about the state……….they can be a victim………well not really.

            As for contract law, unless you have two indilvilduals, be they the state or a sovereign, they both need to enter into the contract with freedom and beneficial aspects………..if either is forced or one uses fraudulent terms…………you get the drift.

      Freedom from religions is what they read. And therein lies the problem.

      Oops,, I mean Christian religion. If Obamacare mandated eating bacon, you don’t think there wouldn’t be a carve out for Muslims?

  • stuckinIL4now

    The decision already is theirs so if they choose it then they can take responsibility for paying for it by getting another job like a lot of people have no choice but to do in order to be able to afford to pay for the gubmint-compliant health insurance that requires they buy coverages they neither need nor want.

  • alanstorm

    Attention liberals:

    Democrats in Congress think you’re idiots. There is no way in which “failing to provide” something equates to “denying” something.

    You’re welcome.

  • Steve__Jacobson

    By requiring a company to pay for women’s birth control and/or abortions aren’t women ceding the decision making to the company?

    • Ruth

      This.

  • bicentennialguy

    If I owned Hobby Lobby, a certain white-trash POS Congresswoman from Florida would be shredded in any statement I issued. Who in the hell does said white trash POS think she is to call out any private company in this country for addressing their grievances in a court of law, let alone the infestation that inhabits the White House?

  • John Taznar

    Strange, I don’t know a single woman who’s boss prevented her from getting whatever birth control she wanted or made the decision for her.

    But now the government can in ways no “boss” or insurance company could.

    And Harry Reid doesn’t seem to understand the concept that our health insurance premiums pay for any birth control the insurance covers. It is not “free”. Never has been. Never will be.

    • carla5731

      Unfortunately your barrage of common sense is no match for their fortress of idiocy. The stupid is just too strong.

  • The Masked Avatar

    Employer birth control? Make her work late and during the weekends. Won’t get pregnant.

    • DeadlockVictim

      You couldn’t find a way to fit in a sandwich-making reference?

      • The Masked Avatar

        Sandwich? That would be sexist.

  • Leslie Lesaroo

    Every time I hear another hang up happened with O”care”, the thankfulness wells up in my heart and I have to look up, smile and say, “You go, God!” The Almighty is standing with those who cling to their faith in Him and He will make a way.

          • ObamaFail

            Yet you libs try to squash any opposing opinion and belief. Guess you don’t mind boring as long as they think the way you demand they do.

    • ObamaFail

      If the owners of the company are religious, then the owners religious beliefs are the ones being oppressed by Obamacare. So try to keep up idiot.

  • Leader of the Resistance

    Birth control is a choice the boss shouldn’t make? Sure, but don’t make the boss pay for it.

  • Mead

    Buy your own birth control and contraceptives, you cheap lazy jerks. It’s not even that expensive. You buy your own toothpaste, and that’s infinitely more vital to “health care” than that crap.

  • Bilbo Baggins

    Good Lord, can Harry Reid be any more senile?

  • ToyZebra

    All this may be trying to wormtongue John Roberts again. If he doesn’t support Obamacare, then he’s against women.

    So does this mean condoms have to be free too?

  • Stephie Sky McKinley

    They’re still calling it “free” contraception. I might believe that if the birth control fairy were real.

  • conservative2012

    I swear you can tell liberals the facts all you want. They’ll just stare blankly at you, and keep telling lies. Hobby Lobby does pay for birth control. They do not believe in paying for the morning-after pill. The morning-after pill is not birth control.

    • Bathing Suit Area

      Yes it is.

  • ObamaFail

    Liberal women are so terrified of having to take their cigarette money, their iphone money, and whatever other things they waste money on to pay for their own damn birth control. They love to say, “My body, my choice.” Yeah, well I have one. MY WALLET, MY CHOICE!! If I don’t want my tax dollars paying for someone’s birth control just because they are too cheap to pay for their own, why should I have to pay for it?

    Birth control should be a woman’s decision, not her boss’s —> http://1.usa.gov/IfwMIM ,

    Woman can go work somewhere else if she doesn’t like boss’s decision, what choices do we get under obowmao care?

    • ObamaFail

      Exactly. If the bosses don’t want to provide her free abortion pills or birth control, she can quit and work somewhere else.

      • Gallatin

        I can’t wait until these women get hit with with something they don’t like, we’ll see how those boycotts work out then.

      • WhoDat

        You make it sound like that’s an easy decision.

        • ForTheRepublicOfDave

          If you’re more concerned with getting free birth control than holding down a job, then yes, it should be easy…to fire you. Plain and simple.

        • Gallatin

          What is so difficult about the decision? You don’t like the policies and benefits of your employer, go work somewhere else.

  • Rex

    Stop falling for this “War on Women” BS! Its as token as Forest Whitaker in
    Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

  • Scree El Tort

    Simple fix:

    If SCOTUS rules against Hobby Lobby, HL should announce the end of employer-provided insurance at the end of the (current) year, with an explanation that their action is a direct result of poor choices made in the voting booth.

    Elections have consequences.

  • RedSoloCup

    More reason to give Hobby Lobby my business. That they have the courage to stick it to a very tyrannical government.

  • jeanie6

    This case worries me. Much is at stake.

  • Happy Dragon

    Libtard logic: a woman’s birth control is her choice because it’s her life, but a boss’s money is also her choice because woman!

  • plaingolf

    I’d be more then happy to pay for a woman’s birth control. Right before I nail her!
