The U.S. Supreme Court has made it more difficult for women to get access to birth control as part of their health plans if their employer has religious or moral objections to contraceptives.

So, in the middle of a Pandemic those women whose budgets are already stretched to the max so some Kristian won't be offended by them having access to birth control. I have zero respect for Kristians like that, selfish, self-centered a*****es who think their beliefs are more important than the choices women make to make their lives more tolerable. F Kristians. I just don't believe Jesus would be one of them today. Now you know how I really feel about such folks...as if you didn't already.

They say it's because of their deep religious morality.

Doesn't sound very moral to me. Certainly not a religion I would want to be a part of.

The church of hatin on women. What's weird is that church women let them get away with it.

They still have access to birth control, they just have to pay for it. Same as if a man wants to get a vasectomy, it comes out of their pocket and it is not covered by the insurance. You know what you are getting when you go apply for a job and so if you don't like what is being offered, then get a job somewhere else. You are not forced to work there. They have rules, you don't have to like them, but they are their rules and so follow them. That is a concept that is going away in this country and it is very sad.

"That did not satisfy some religious objectors, however. They contended that signing an opt-out form or notifying their plan administrator was the same as authorizing the use of their plan for birth control."

Always there are extremists.

Not everybody is such a tool as to accept a person's control over you because they're your employer.

These people have no right or place inserting their personal beliefs in your medical treatments. Full stop. Discussion over.

Discussion back on. Then don't work for them. Their business, their rules. It is a private business, so, if your medical treatment goes against their beliefs, then they do control that, if you want them to pay for it. Once again, you can get birth control, the business just won't pay for it. You need to deal with it. Discussion over again.

Nope.

This will and should be challenged.

Here's a question-how many degrees of separation away from the business are their beliefs in effect? Because THEY are not paying for contraception, the insurance company is.

How is it not then violating their rights when the employee uses their paycheck to pay for contraception? It's the same number of degrees away and both are spending money that no longer belongs to the company. So why not extend it to that point as well?

Republicans aren't pro-life, they're only 'pro-BIRTH' - acting as if the baby's life ends once it's born.

What sense does it make to limit contraceptives and then tell women they can't get an abortion if they have an unwanted pregnancy? Or cut and call for cuts in programs to help them once they're actually born?

All of it makes absolutely no sense, and proves Republicans are only 'pro-BIRTH,' not 'pro-life.'

"They still have access to birth control"

Not without a prescription.
Should an employer have to cover health insurance that's going to be used to get a prescription for birth control?

Civil rights violation. Period.

Not to worry
The victory lap will be short lived once they realize these "lives" won't be cracker white and don't hate minorities

You just wait for some attitude then

This is awesome in one way and tragic in another. It's awesome because the Lib response has been so hypocritical that maybe it will wake them up to their hypocrisy finally and set them on a path of recovery. It's tragic because that obviously will never happen. Liberals partied when the Supreme Court upheld ACA and voted against Cons. But then the Supreme Court rules something that Libs don't agree with and now they are bad.

"Republicans aren't pro-life, they're only 'pro-BIRTH' - acting as if the baby's life ends once it's born."

Um, might want to check your privilege on this buddy. You are basically admitting that a baby's life exists before birth, so then abortion IS murder to you and your privilege makes you think murder is OK. I'm pro-choice but I can't stand when people use faulty logic to make a point.

You are, as usual, full of crap. We did not party when the SC said that red states could refuse to accept Medicaid Expansion and thereby prevent the working poor for access to decent healthcare. You dummies can think whatever Fox News tells you to think about us evil liberals but what makes us liberals is empathy that you simply lack. You don't even understand the concept of empathy. You can't understand the concept because your brain is incapable of it and that is why you are what you are.

If we grant the precise that these entities can't go along with abortion for moral or religious reasons, fine. But then they should NOT be against contraception as that helps reduce abortion.

What has yet to sink in for some men is that these kinds of efforts just makes their chance at scoring even less likely.

It's like an INCEL army of party -------
