The ACA does not force employers to pay for abortifacients.

It didn't before that either.

Per the Supreme Court's ruling, the ACA can't mandate coverage for ANYTHING because a company can claim that they believe it causes abortions. Blood pressure medicine? Causes abortions, we don't want to cover it. Casts for broken arms? Causes abortions, we don't want to cover it. Heart surgery? Causes abortions, we don't want to cover it.

Brian, it will be a bittersweet victory if abortion rates climb. I thought most of us were at least on that page. Without implantation, there is no pregnancy to consider terminating.

What an insipid ruling, odd I didn't read it in Ginsburg's dissent. Can you cite?

Hobby Lobby refused to pay for 4 abortion inducing "contraceptives" of 20 licensed by the FDA. Their employees are free to pay for those abortifacients, if they choose. The other 16 are still free with no copay by Hobby Lobby's insurance.

If you think people are so stupid that denied those four methods they'll avoid the other 16 and there will be more abortions; I disagree, I think better of people. In fact, I believe people should pay for their own contraceptives, without public assistance.

Under Obamacare, birth control becomes a common welfare issue, taken from the individual. The end begins very gently and then it's too late...

The ruling was that Hobby Lobby did not have to cover 4 particular forms of BC because they held the belief that they caused abortions. The ruling also stated that it did not matter if the belief was false.

Therefore, it must follow that a corporation could believe that blood pressure medication (or anything else) causes abortions and get an exemption from covering them.

None of the 4 forms of BC they objected to induce abortions. None.

Contraception is a common welfare issue. It's well established that the population having easy and cheap access to birth control is good for society. It significantly reduces unwanted pregnancies.

The whole Hobby Lobby thing was about freedom of religion, like it or not it is. And no it doesn't mean if you think blood pressure cuffs or what cause abortions, would make you exempt. 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.

Senator Joe Biden sponsored the Religious Freedom Restoration Act to the Senate; Obama picked Biden as his running mate. Don't blame the court, blame the law.

Nobody, not even pro-choice folks want or advocate abortions.

Abortion is seen as an unfortunate choice some feel they must make in the face of severe adversity, be it unsupportive family, unsupportive father, rape, severe birth defect.

Only the mother can decide for herself what she can handle and make that choice.

99% of abortions would not happen if the woman had the kind support and compassion from her family and the father to feel safe in brining the child into the world and raise him or her without judgement.

But pro-life people only provide lip service and no substance to their pleas against it.

Have you ever heard of a pro-choice person stalking a pregnant woman and asking her to go get an abortion?

If pro-life people were serious, they would open up comfortable supportive homes for women facing unplanned or difficult pregnancies and guarantee them a safe place to raise their kids into adulthood.

Then wait and see where the women go and what the majority choose. That would probably put a huge dent into the abortion rate.

So get busy pro-lifers, you could make a difference and not look like jerks at the same time.

Why not? The BC medications at issue in the case don't cause abortions. The court ruled that it *didn't matter* if Hobby Lobby's belief was false.

Does this make sense to ANYONE else?
Are complete sentences forbidden where you come from?
Seriously, if your goal is to make a point, you'd do better with a well-reasoned argument than this mish-mash approach you're currently employing...

I suspect they are such an avid texter that they can no longer write actual english. Of course, they don't appear to have anything to say anyway, so I've been ignoring them. This latest example of dumb-code appears to reference Ecclesiastes.

What, precisely, is your point?
That if we manage to reduce abortions here--in the USA--that they're going to increase overseas?
The very fact that many of you folks on the P-L side of this argument don't wish acknowledge is that the majority of us on the PC side want to see the statistical number of abortions decrease as well is something we've had to deal with for decades now!
