Set aside for a moment the fact that Hobby Lobby’s health plan included coverage for 16 forms of non-abortive contraception. Is liberal commentator Sally Kohn right that in the absence of an employer subsidy low-wage workers wouldn’t be able to afford birth control?

Yep, $9 per month:

Birth control pills can be purchased for as low as $9 per month at a pharmacy near Georgetown’s campus. According to an employee at the pharmacy in Washington, D.C.’s Target store, the pharmacy sells birth control pills–the generic versions of Ortho Tri-Cyclen and Ortho-Cyclen–for $9 per month. “That’s the price without insurance,” the Target employee said. Nine dollars is less than the price of two beers at a Georgetown bar.

That seems to be the going rate at most pharmacies.

For those who are really struggling to pay the bills., there are other forms of birth control that cost even less.

One more thing: The poor, exploited full-time hourly workers at Hobby Lobby make more than the minimum wage. Much more.

Which is why Sally Kohn fits right with all the other liberals who’ve been spouting off about this issue.
