so is the 15 dollar meme a new myth from the nutjob sites?

and i'm not going to ask how it is that you know about the 8 dollar bj. though i suspect the new right wing birth control/abortion meme will soon be.......More BJs!

The court's decision only effects "closely held" corporations. They wouldn't have won the case if their stock was publically traded. The vast majority of employers are unaffected. If an IUD is that important to you, don't apply there.
That's not the point..It sets a precedent for future cases concerning religious zealots quest to control womens bodies

ok, shed the opinions. i can do that.
No, using emergency contraceptive pills (also called "morning after pills" or "day after pills") prevents pregnancy after sex. It does not cause an abortion.(In fact, because emergency contraception helps women avoid getting pregnant when they are not ready or able to have children, it can reduce the need for abortion.)
Emergency contraceptive pills work before pregnancy begins. According to leading medical authorities – such as the National Institutes of Health and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists – pregnancy begins when the fertilized egg implants in the lining of a woman's uterus. Implantation begins five to seven days after sperm fertilizes the egg, and the process is completed several days later. Emergency contraception will not work if a woman is already pregnant.

pretty sure the Court didn't rule against science.
so will you now enter battle with right wing myths? of various and lengthy OPINIONS!
Exactly my point; the morning after pill is a stronger dose of birth control; it's not an abortion pill. Same with iud. How did this case go to the SC based upon lies? It's absolutely absurd.

The Abstinence Gluttons

Meet the religious conservatives at the faith-based feeding trough who are getting rich controlling sex education in America.

Over the past six years George W. Bush's faith-based Administration and a conservative Republican Congress transformed the small-time abstinence-only business into a billion-dollar industry. These dangerously ineffective sexual health enterprises flourish not because they spread "family values" but because of generous helpings of the same pork-heavy gumbo Bush & Co. brought to war-blighted Iraq and Katrina-hammered New Orleans--a mix of back-scratching cronyism, hefty partisan campaign donations, high-dollar lobbyists, a revolving door for political appointees and a lack of concern for results.

That's not true; the religious zealots, like Carol, love this type of maneuver. The evangelical fanatics are continuously on a quest to chip away at women's rights. They are also on a mission to dismantle public education so they can indoctrinate children with religion.
It's a dangerous path, because if it can be done with Christianity, it can be done for all religions and before you know it we have become a theocracy.
Remember the Catholics claiming that the child molester priests were protected by Cannon Law?

When Hobby Lobby’s Critics Find Out How Much It Pays Employees, They Might Want To Get A Job There
62,442 Shares By Emily Hulsey 1 day ago

After today’s Supreme Court decision allowing it to refrain from providing emergency contraceptive coverage to its employees, arts and crafts store Hobby Lobby is not exactly in the left’s good graces.
However, maybe they’ll sing a different tune when they hear how much Hobby Lobby pays its workers. From Young Conservatives:
…Hobby Lobby pay their full-time employees a minimum of $14 an hour. That is nearly double the national average for minimum wage. The hourly wage for part-time employees is also $9.50.
*
“We are very fortunate to be able to increase hourly wages for our employees, because we know our company would not be successful without the great work they do each day in our stores across the nation,” said the CEO and founder David Green.
The company raised its full-time wages from $13 to $14 per hour – almost double the federal minimum wage – in April of last year. Hobby Lobby also opened more than 30 new stores across the U.S. last year, creating over 1,000 additional jobs.
So, to be clear, liberals are upset about a company that still offers birth control and pays their employees a minimum wage of $14 an hour. Let that sink in for a moment.
As much as some may want to demonize the company for refusing to pay for what it views as abortion, many of those very same people would be happy to hear about Hobby Lobby’s commitment to pay its employees fair, realistic and livable wages.
But how can we expect them to hear that over their own panicked screams concerning yesterday’s decision?
