Today I learned women's healthcare is 'free stuff.'

Not synonymous, anonymous. Contraception is available freely, and for free, at thousands of readily available locations. And take an honest look at Hobby Lobby's position: it makes any contraception method available to plan members with the exception of four methods that technically abort the fetus, which the company is opposed to based on religious reasons. "Women's healthcare" is not withheld from Hobby Lobby employees. Should any one of them choose to use one of the four methods that Hobby Lobby finds objectionable, she can easily and conveniently find FREE sources for said methods.

By definition, women's reproductive healthcare options are being reduced. There will be fewer patient choices, and in this specific instance, there is no comparable substitute being offered.

That there are before-sex alternatives being provided is not the point.

There, presumably, will now be no after-sex alternative offered because a business is now a person and we can't offend the business' religion.

Any way you slice it, this is a reduction in the healthcare options being provided women. It's a black-and-white issue. Those employees will have fewer healthcare options provided under their plan.

No it is not, unless you think the employer should be responsible for every aspect of someone's physical needs. As has already been pointed out, there's any number of options for someone wanting these few birth control options, including buying a separate insurance policy elsewhere that might offer what she wants.

Remember, they ordered the Morning After Pill be made instantly available at any drug store, even to minors? No?

What does birth control have to do with religion? Ive never heard such an assinine argument. The bible says be fruitful and multiply, but there were TWO people on earth!!! We now have 7 BILLION.

Here are some ironies: Hobby Lobby produces most of its products in a country(China) that REQUIRES abortions and CRIMINALIZES Christianity.

Secondly, Hobby Lobby allows for men to get vasectomies. Isnt that birth control? And here's the big kicker, guys get VIAGRA!

How hypocritical can people get away with? Come on!!!

All the world is going to worship the Beast, except a small group who fear God. Liberty of conscience is not respected by the Papacy, it's goal is a unity of Church and State with the Church telling the state what to do, they cry for religious liberty for themselves, but when in power they deny it to others. Read history.

6:49 Viagra is not birth control although in your case, facts are not your forte.

Gotta love people like you that once born want to control population.

Why don't you stand up to greed instead of blathering about how many people there are.

You do get 1 point for facts about China and abortions and criminalizing Christianity.
