When a liar lies, he's the liar, not the one he's accusing. You continue to lie about me and slander me. You're a fake Christian, a fake American and a fake human being.

OMG, whatever did women do for birth control before the Democrat nanny system? I know, they paid for their own. Let them pay, or stop having sex.

Yes, my whole family still has sex, and we pay for our own birth control. How quaint.

My BC was covered under my prescription healthcare coverage which I PAID IN TO...AS IT SHOULD BE! IT IS A PRESCRIPTION DRUG! Discriminatory practices are a two way street.

Good for you. I assume you pay for your own insurance? If so it doesn't matter if someone else does not want to pay for it. I am talking about the insurance the Government expected the Church, and regular employers to pay for, then it becomes their businness. People who find abortion murder should not be asked to pay for another to abort their unborn child. At some point the baby daddy should have to pay for something.

NONSENSE. You're free to keep whatever stupid beliefs you want. Other people have the same freedom to call those beliefs stupid. If YOU have a problem with that, too bad.

As far as I'M concerned, backward religious beliefs and toxic religious doctrines that treat women as second-class citizens don't deserve respect. They only deserve REJECTION. The more people who reject backward beliefs, regardless of the faith they stem from, the better.

What the hell are you talking about? My insurance was employer provided which I paid a portion of. BC was covered as it IS a prescription drug. Further the "church" is exempt BUT NOT CHURCH RUN BUSINESSES> They fall under COMMERCE LAW, they do not get to use the whiney excuse of religion to DISCRIMINATE. Like I said, if you want that changed then be prepared to be discriminated against due to YOUR religion. Discriminatory practices are against the law, the days of gender discrimination ARE OVER. If you want it to come back then I say BRING IT ON and allow discrimination across the board.

it don't discrimination to not provide BC as part of health insurance. Where do you left Wong nuts come up with such stupid irrational garbage? And you don't know yet if the company that is owned by Catholics will be exempt or not. It will be litigated. They may win.

It most certainly is discrimination!!!!!! To eliminate prescription drugs specific to females to prevent a medical condition IS PURE DISCRIMINATION!!!! You right wing religious nuts are most certainly illogical, irrational, brain washed mythical phallic worshipping NUT CASES. I DON"T CARE WHO OWNS A COMPANY, they fall under commerce laws and are NOT free to discriminate using religion as an EXCUSE! If you nuts want to discriminate then I should be able to NOT HIRE any CATHOLIC based on the FACT that I consider them weak minded misogynistic ill brained fools. RIGHT???

getting pregnant isn't a medical condition.

No one cares of you care or not. The courts will decide of they can be forced to provide something they are morally against. Your opinion really won't matter much one way or the other.

The fact that you don't respect peoples religious views is more of a condemnation of you then them. It shows that liberals are ignorant, weak, judgemental, biased, hate filled fools. That would be you in case you missed it. And you are intolerant.

and you do understand that many of these companies will just simply stop providing ANY insurance at all. You do understand that don't you? Then the employee will have to go onto the market and buy ALL their insurance themselves. ALL their coverage will have to be paid for out of their own pockets. BC and all other coverage. Great plan hate monger.

I'm sorry, but pregnancy IS a medical condition.

They are not being forced to use birth control.

They don't have the right to impose their own religious beliefs on their employees by way of that employee's compensation packet.

If they do that, they will lose employees, and have to go out of business. I hope they have enough money to pay the fines.

They will no longer get any from my family, who DO have hobbies, and shopped there for years, some of us on a monthly basis. It was just as close as Michael's, and had a better selection. No longer, and I contacted them, and told them so. I know a loss of seven won't break them, but I doubt we are the only ones who will boycott.
