Is Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby really about women’s rights? 1

1911624_10152363677543417_553174338_nThe Left has tried to twist Sebelius v Hobby Lobby into another “war on women” issue.

Are they correct?

Is Hobby Lobby and their right-wing, religious ilk really trying to take away women’s rights since they do not want the government to compel them to purchase contraception, abortifacients, and sterilization in their employee health plans?

No, of course not.

Regardless of who wins this case, which is being argued before the Supreme Court today, woman will still be able to purchase these products and services.

No one is taking them away from women.

If Hobby Lobby prevails, it simply means that women won’t be able to force someone else to pay for them. The mainstream media has set up a false equivalence by suggesting the contrary. But what would you expect from them?

The HHS Mandate is more than an overreach by the federal government; it is an immoral imposition upon  decent people of faith to force them to do something they consider evil.

If women want to inflict contraceptives and abortifacients on their bodies, they may still do so, but at their own expense. This case as nothing to do with women’s rights or a war on women.

Any suggestion to the contrary is simply dishonest.

  1. Prior to being told they should sue, Hobby Lobby’s insurance covered the morning after pill. It’s too bad people turn their back on science.
