The women who hilariously reorganized some of Hobby Lobby's shelves to protest the now infamous Supreme Court decision spoke with us about her act of social media piracy.
Instead of slut-shaming Sandra Fluke and other women for wanting affordable, safe contraception included in their health insurance policies in the same way men are covered for vasectomies and the like, Limbaugh attacked men for a change.
How far will this go? Religious freedom, as with free speech and other rights aren't intended to be across-the-board, absolute freedoms.
No wonder women are pissed off. It's a reaction that The Five's Eric Bolling and Greg Gutfeld don't understand, partly because they likely have Cadillac insurance plans paid for by NewsCorp, but also because they're misogynists.
Fox News Channel and the conservative entertainment complex continued throughout the day Monday to repeat the lie that Hobby Lobby and other small businesses with religious owners were being forced by evil Obama to pay for abortion pills.
Rove: "What they objected to were three drugs, and one device that were designed to end a pregnancy -- to terminate a pregnancy. Morning after pills, for example." This is grotesquely false.
Simply put: none of the drugs covered by the ACA are abortion-inducing pills of any kind. NONE!
President Obama declined to answer questions about the Supreme Court's ruling on the Hobby Lobby case this morning, so Monday morning's White House daily briefing provided the first opportunity for the administration to react to a decision that places employers' religious beliefs ahead of its employees' rights.
Bibles? Firearms? Blah people? Nope, nope and nope. Better.
Hobby Lobby, which is suing the federal government over Obamacare's mandary contraception coverage, offers its employees a 401(k) retirement plan that happens invest $73 million in pharmaceutical companies that develop and produce various forms of contraception. And that's not all...
Kennedy seemed to understand that the emergency contraception covered in the law doesn't induce an abortion. Which is good. But the most astonishing thing to emerge from the case was Kennedy's assertion that if the government forces Hobby Lobby or other corporations with religious objections to enroll in health insurance policies that cover this form of contraception, then someday down the road the government could also force Hobby Lobby and others to accept insurance policies that cover abortions.
Virginia State Senator Steve Martin, an anti-choice Republican, received a pro-choice Valentine's Day card from an activist group and decided to rant about it on Facebook. Here's the choice paragraph in which he refers to expecting mothers as "hosts."
A new study released today appears to confirm the fact that access to new forms of contraception has helped to reduce the abortion rate to its lowest level since Roe v Wade legalized the medical procedure in 1973.
By Bob Cesca: There's a slim chance Obamacare's contraception coverage could survive the ideological knee-jerk of Supreme Court conservatives -- that is as long as a strong scientific case is made for the fact that, no, the morning after pill, also known as Plan-B or "emergency contraception," does not induce abortion.
The Court has already established First Amendment rights for corporations. If the Court decides against Hobby Lobby, it will have effectively extended only one clause of the First Amendment to corporations, while denying other First Amendment rights. This is likely the logic a decision against the ACA will be based upon.
