As you probably already have heard, the High Court ruled that closely-held corporations with limited numbers of stockholders do not have to pay for their employee's contraceptives.
My thoughts on this is the High Court got it right this time when they ruled in favor of Hobby Lobby.
"The Supreme Court put freedom of religion above reproductive freedom Monday in the most closely watched case of its term, ruling that companies cannot be forced to offer insurance coverage for certain birth control methods they equate with abortion," says Richard Wolf, USA TODAY (read more).
The question is, why should a small business of any kind have to violate the unified religious views of its owners by paying for contraceptives? My thought is that if employees don't like this, they have the right to go work elsewhere.
Hillary Clinton Disagrees
“I disagree with the reasoning as well as the conclusion,” Clinton said Monday, speaking at the Aspen Ideas Festival carried live on Facebook. “It’s the first time that our court has said that a closely held corporation has the rights of a person when it comes to religious freedom,” says Hillary Rodam Clinton. “I find it deeply disturbing we are going in that direction” read more).
Of course, once again, Hillary has it wrong. Aren't you so glad we do not live in a dictatorship (yet)?
