Its the conservative decision, yes, but even as a liberal I see the merits. A small, family owned business founded on conservative Christian principles can be excused from purchasing contraceptives for employees thru its insurance plan. Okay. I don’t really agree with it. But I can live with it. There has to be room for recognizing the conscientious objection. And I tire of hearing both sides talk about the war on women. I believe strongly in contraception. But if women are going to go to work for extremely Christian family owned businesses, they should do so understanding the health plan won’t pay for contraception. A reasonable accommodation. After all, we don’t want to further scare Christians who are afraid to talk about contraception. Just help the old women back into their buggy. Nothing to see here.

In a country where half of all pregnancies are unwanted because they were accidental, unplanned or imposed, I always thought contraception to prevent conception was preferable to abortion after the fact. But I just hated the idea of forcing people to pay for the insurance when they so clearly objected on religious principle. Its like the vaccination debate. I believe getting vaccinations is the best policy, and don’t give a lot of merit to the “causes autism” argument. But I always hated the idea of forcing parents to do it against their will. I know we’re seeing measles again because of this. But I do think the constitution protects certain religious exceptions. On a planet with billions of people I think it makes sense to embrace population control with contraception before we all starve to death. However. Even though I have little respect for fundamental Christians and their odd beliefs, I do recognize their rights. And they won today fair and square.

Can't afford to tithe now. I've gotta purchase birth control for the missus.

Well the obvious strategy of the treasonous anti-American POS baraq obamantion regime is to commit as many outrageous tramplings of the Constitution as possible on a daily basis and whichever tramplings the Supreme Court doesn't strike down can stay and become some asinine laws in baraq obamanaton's not so secret anymore agenda to destroy America as we know it.

Private employers should not be forced to buy their employees anything that isn't directly related to the job. If the government determines that health insurance is something that is so essential that everyone must have access to it then they should raise taxes and provide it directly.

They've been trying, but the a-hole teabaggers in congress keep blocking it.

Hopefully people that shop there will find other places to shop, the dollar can be mighty persuasive.

Amazon is wonderful and many items are 'add-ons' which means free shipping.
