Reminder: Hobby Lobby Provides Coverage for 16 Types of Contraception
Katie Pavlich | Jun 30, 2014

After today's Supreme Court ruling in favor of Hobby Lobby, the left and
Democrats are predictably claiming the 5-4 decision bans contraception
for women.

    Supreme Court rules that bosses can deny employees coverage of birth
control. #HobbyLobby #NotMyBossBusiness

That claim is completely false. Not to mention, Hobby Lobby itself
provides coverage of 16 different types of contraception to its

    The Green family has no moral objection to the use of 16 of 20
preventive contraceptives required in the mandate, and Hobby Lobby will
continue its longstanding practice of covering these preventive
contraceptives for its employees. However, the Green family cannot
provide or pay for four potentially life-threatening drugs and devices.
These drugs include Plan B and Ella, the so-called morning-after pill
and the week-after pill. Covering these drugs and devices would violate
their deeply held religious belief that life begins at the moment of
conception, when an egg is fertilized. 

Facts matter, but to the left, emotion on this issue wins.
