False. None of the drugs at issue in the Hobby Lobby case were abortifacients. Hobby Lobby held the false belief that they were, but they were not.
The SCOTUS ruled that it doesn't even matter if the belief is false; it's still protected. No, we had massive amounts of people uninsured, under-insured, or unable to be insured.
What Hobby Lobby will not cover are four contraceptive methods that its owners fear are abortifacients:

Plan B (“The Morning After Pill”)
Ella (a similar type of “emergency contraception”)
Copper Intra-Uterine Device
IUD with progestin

Rather than simply prevent sperm and ova from uniting, Hobby Lobby’s owners believe that these medications either kill human beings when they are fertilized eggs or prevent them from implanting themselves in utero, whereupon they die.

Hobby Lobby's owners believe life begins at conception. They provide baby showers for pregnant employees, not abortions.

Encouraging women to murder their own children is wrong. Obamacare is bad law; delay, defund and repeal.

They can fear that Tylenol is an abortifacient if they want to: they're wrong. None of those 4 drugs causes an abortion.

2 of the 4 medications are known NOT to affect implantation (Plan B and Ella). The other 2 theoretically might, but there is no positive evidence that they do.

Hobby Lobby owners do not believe in abortions neither do other religious institutions . They shouldn't have to or be forced to pay for abortions if it goes against their religion.
" They shouldn't have to or be forced to pay for abortions if it goes against their religion. "

Why should they have to pay for any healthcare, "if it goes against their religion"?

Don't want to conceive your offspring/child,then don't have sex while fertile. If you have sex anyway,then a possible conception might take place which means you HAVE your existing,developing child located inside of you beginning at point a,that will travel to point b,and eventually to point c.......where that child will continue to use your body(breast feeding)for survival while they continue to develop and mature throughout their many stages of life.

Nice try at changing the subject regarding your comparison of pedophiles to women who have terminated pregnancies.

You wrote: "My comment wasn't regarding two consenting adults having sex,it was regarding your statement that the pedophile gets off while terrorising his victim and that women who go through abortion don't get off."

You said they are equally "evil". Yet, you say you have friends who have had abortions. Would you let them babysit your kids? Do you have pedophile friends, too? Would you let them babysit your kids?

Here's a solution: We do single payer for women only, including all reproductive care choices. Women can go to the doc whenever they need to, and you, their employers, an insurance company will all be completely out of it. Religion wouldn't be an issue for anybody.

Shouldn't everyone have religious freedom? Is it for employer's to decide what health care an employee should and should not have? Apparently it is. Problem is, the employer's right to practice his/her religion trumps the employee's right to same, per the Supreme Court. The only targeted group for this religious discrimination in health care is this group called "women". These women must have equal religious freedom or, to hell with it -- our Constitution is meaningless. The solution I suggest is single payer for women only (men are not being targeted). This would ensure religious freedom for every woman in the nation, as well as these crackpot religious nuts like the Hobby Lobby owners. Everybody wins.

The employer's right to practice his/her religion doesn't trump the employee's right, the employees can still buy those four forms of abortifacients. Single payer would force all taxpayers to pay for abortifacients.

Joe Biden wrote the Religious Freedom Restoration Act when he was in the Sentate, blame him for the "crackpot religious nuts", he gave them legal protections.

It's a fetus; there's no such thing as an unborn child any more than there is an unbaked cake.

I don't care, and I've made that pretty frigging obvious. I don't care because ONLY the pregnant woman has the right to decide if she will carry to term or not. I also don't care which decision she makes; that's none of my business--or yours.

Of course the employer's right trumps the employee's right, in this case. Should a female employee wish to choose one of the four legal forms of contraceptives, she can't -- simply because her employer holds a belief that the contraceptive is immoral. The company is not gifting healthcare to its employees. They work for it. They earn it. Therefore, the employee is, for all intents and purposes, paying for it. It is a benefit, no different than a wage or salary. It's not as if the company is gifting health care, like a holiday bonus or gift certificate.

My point regarding single payer for women only is a way to take all employers out of the equation. So, no matter what who believes or doesn't believe, the individual woman is free to choose whatever contraceptive works best for her. These four contraceptives are legal. They do not cause abortion. Women ought to have the right to believe the truth and act on it as they see fit. They should not be encumbered by their employer's false beliefs. It is necessary to create a safe haven where women can reject anyone's crazy religious rules, especially when those rules are based in a biological falsehood.

Employment IS a contract, idiot; the employee agrees to provide labor in exchange for compensation. There are laws protecting employees whether there is a written contract or not.

Employees are for rent slaves they have no rights, unless of course they are worthy of an employment contract, then they can negotiate their compensation.

Should a female employee wish to choose one of the four legal forms of contraceptives, the court found she can if she pays with her own money.

They can pay for whatever they want, the law says their employers aren't forced to pay for abortifacients.

Those aren't gifts either, holiday pay is mandated by federal law. Now you're learning, the more government regulation of employment, the less significant the citizen.

Joe Biden sponsored the Religious Freedom Restoration Act and Obama selected him as vice president.

Take away the tax benefit employers get by providing health care with income sheltered from income tax and give it to employees. I don't dislike women so I can't advocate single payer for them. Obamacare is bad enough as is; delay defund and repeal.

No, you don't know what the term "contract" means. Written instruments are just one form. Any agreement between two parties involving action/goods and consideration is a contract.

Yes I have, in fact. And you cannot fire anyone for "any reason" in at-will states; the laws concerning anti-discrimination still apply. for example. If you can prove you were fired in violation of such laws, you can still sue.

<quoted text>
If you do not have a contract in WRITING you are an "at will" employee. You can be fired or you can quit at any time for any reason. You will have under the law certain rights regarding safety, minimum wage, and federal guidelines for very basic employment conditions such as harassment and 40+ overtime pay.
You apparently have never hired anyone or worked anywhere in management.
