  •  contraceptives are "lifestyle drugs" (7+ / 0-)

    Sure, contraceptives are used to prevent pregnancy, but also used for other women's medical issues.......sigh
    Me thinks these companies have had a little too much Limbaugh crack.

    Thomas More says both Monaghan and Potter are Roman Catholics and say that they object to paying for their employees contraceptive coverage on moral grounds. According to a report in Salon, Potter has joined of other leaders of brands with progressive reputations in speaking out against the ACA including the CEOs of Whole Foods and Lululemon.

    Eden Foods’ 128 employees are covered under Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Michigan, which is currently going through its own transition to a nonprofit mutual insurer. According to Thomas More’s website, Potter had been able to exclude “lifestyle drugs” from his company’s Blue Cross policy for years, but the insurer acted unilaterally in instituting the new ACA mandated coverage.
