Accuracy in Media

WASHINGTON — The Christian owners of both Hobby Lobby, Inc. and Conestoga Wood won in court today over the right to exercise religious liberty and freedom of conscience with abortion drugs.

Justice Samuel Alito wrote the majority opinion in the ruling and was joined by Chief Justice John Roberts, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy.

The Obama administration was dealt another blow by the U.S. Supreme Court, having already lost another battle over recess appointments by President Barack Obama this Supreme Court term.

The companies, owned by Christian owners, sued the government for forcing them to provide coverage of four abortifacents, or abortion-inducing drugs. They contended that the four drugs, which was pushed on them by the ObamaCare contraceptive mandate, violated their freedom of religion and conscience.

Hobby Lobby, for example, provides coverage of 16 other birth control drugs mandated by ObamaCare, yet the media pushed out the liberal narrative that they refuse to cover any birth control drug. The owners contended that the four drugs in question force abortion and destroy life, which violates their religious beliefs.

    I just read in Deroy Murdock’s column about Hobby Lobby (6/30/14 National Review Online) about the list of contraceptive goodies employees of Hobby Lobby are able to obtain. Hardly a Puritan’s or Catholic canon lawyer’s list.
    Where were all the advocates of “choice” some 30 years ago when my wife and I were browsing and mulling over which health policy to choose from the very prestigious women’s college I was employeed with at the time. All were pretty good, affordable for most of our purposes. But they all contained this one little passage many conservative and even liberal anti-abortion would-be customers of employer offered policies are familiar with. I suppose you’ve guessed it by now, “termination of pregnancy.” LOL, some “choice” for those folks like us who can tell the sugar-coated BS for what it was then, and now.
    In fairness to this college, which treated me very well, it’s not the only academic institution or employer offering such a choice-less choice. This is the “regular fare” we “all have to get used to.” In the meantime folks, take a look at the choices Hobby Lobby offers its employees, (not to mention superb working hours compared to the rest of the big retailers. Please don’t equate my amazement at Hobby Lobby’s list of contraceptive goodies offered and covered with approval. But for the life of me, what the hell are the liberals whining about?
