    That's it, right there. Women are for babies. Women with a healthy sex life are sluts. And pay me less too. Oh, and the war on women is a myth. For me this hobby lobby bullshit is not so much about recognizing corporations as people as it is about keeping women in their place.

      Hobby Lobby if they had free water and I was engulfed in flames.  

      It just gobsmacks me that this case is even being given the time of day.

        At my elderly age I've heard plenty of stories for why various women take birth control pills, or use other methods of birth control (if they're allergic to an ingredient in pills, or were adversely affected for some medical reason).  I know two women who got preggers in spite of IUDs (they came out with the afterbirth).  Some took pills to control menstrual cramps that had previously incapacitated them with extreme pain for at least two or three days per month.  Others had such irregular cycles that taking the pill was the only way to get them under control.  Another one was allergic to the latex in her hubby's condoms so the pill was the alternative choice.  Really, there are multiple valid health reasons - besides only birth control and avoiding pregnancy - to use 'the pill' or other alternative methods of birth control.

        Why this is even an "issue" in health insurance coverage makes my chin hit the floor every time "birth control' and "issue" are uttered/written in the same sentence.  For a "corporate person" who can't possibly worship a deity to take this to the Supreme Court defies logic and rational thought processes.

        I think the persons who own Hobby Lobby should sell their business and go find a hobby that has nothing whatsoever to do with providing health insurance to their employees.
