    Corporations can't reproduce. Why should they be considered a person. Don't fall into their trap of always being put on the defensive, which is their game. Instead of "defending" the right for a woman to have these services, go after them. They want to refuse birth control? Will they pledge to adopt all unwanted children? No? Then who is going to pay to feed, educate school and love the unwanted children.. their church? Will they pledge to this?
    They also need to be asked how a corporation can be a "person" with full legal rights. It is not something with a " spirit" , "soul" "chi" "lifeforce"... so why is it considered a person? Use their own definitions of what "life" is to go after their corporate backers. How can Christian conservatives politictians support the idea that a corporation is a person? It is not the product of a union between a sperm and and egg, nor does it have a soul. It will split the Republicans right down the middle if this question is repeated asked my reporters and citizens,

        We need to throw it back, and make them run after it.
        Pin them down on the consequences of their actions. They won't pay? If they aren't willing to put their money behind their actions, then their action is not viablenor an optoin for consideration.
        Corporations don't have a soul or spirit. How can the be considered a person. ?

          that a corporation is not created by the uniting of egg and sperm.

          that has some traction, I think - regardless of any spiritual aspect

          but of course, the spiritual aspect should still have meaning to those who believe in Christianity
