why do you assume that it must be a religious objection? if i own a restaurant and don't offer alcohol as a choice of beverage, must that be a religious objection? if my health care plan does not cover dental work would you consider that it must be a religious objection? some health care plans don't cover pregnancy, only complications that may result from the pregnancy or the birth. would that be a religious objection? can one be against something without being religious?<quoted text>
No one is talking about a person. We're talking about a business. BTW, the business ALREADY offers the benefit; a prescription plan. What they are doing is discriminating against one legal medication also used to treat a valid medical condition, based SOLELY upon a religious objection to ONE use of said medication. Which imposes religion on the employees, and that is unconstitutional.
now that being said i would agree that if the medication was a valid medication for another medical condition and if it was the best option that it should be covered. but really how many people are you arguing about. that probably already exists in most policies that don't cover birth control.
