“It’s the first time that our court has said that a closely held corporation has the rights of a person when it comes to religious freedom,” Clinton said at the Aspen Ideas Festival, TPM reports. “I find it deeply disturbing that we are going in that direction.”
Hobby Lobby and small Pennsylvania business Conestoga Wood sued the Obama administration for forcing companies to provide four types of contraception, arguing that the birth-control mandate violated the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which was, ironically, signed into law by President Bill Clinton. The act says the government may only “substantially burden a person’s exercise of religion” when it meets a demanding test — one that the Obamacare birth-control mandate didn’t live up to.
When pressed on her husband’s approval of the law that struck the final blow to Obamacare’s pet provision, Clinton brushed aside his involvement.
When Bill Clinton signed the act into law in 1993, “there were legitimate cases of discrimination against religions,” she told reporters. “This is certainly a use that no one foresaw.”
“It’s very troubling that a sales clerk at Hobby Lobby who needs contraception, which is pretty expensive, is not going to get that service through her employer's health care plan because her employer doesn’t believe she should use birth control.”
Hobby Lobby itself provides 16 types of contraception to its employees, making it highly unlikely that a sales clerk at one of the company’s stores would find herself in such a position. But despite the hit against President Barack Obama’s health care law, Democrats are already using Monday’s ruling as a campaign cry.
Hillary and other rabid leftists are seeing an opportunity in this latest Supreme Court decision. They believe they can ride the War on Women wave to consolidate and hold power. Sadly, the level of intelligence out there is likely to allow them to succeed.
I pray instead that there are more out there like Katrina Fernandez who is directly challenging people like Hillary and the psychophants who think like her:
You do know that if you really can’t afford to fund your own promiscuity you can look into your local health department, where you can get your pills for free or dramatically reduced based on your income? Condoms are always free there. If you’re in college, go to your local student clinic. Your contraception is free there too.
This whole let’s make everyone pay for my birth control is ludicrous. And you know it. This was never about birth control and if you think it is, let me remind that…
1) No one has ever died from not having sex
2) Sex or lack thereof is not a medical emergency
3) Pregnancy is not a disease
It’s been two whole years since I wrote this post, and still no one has been able to coherently explain to me why, out of all the drugs in the whole wide world, birth control is the one that should be free.
This has always been, and will continue to be, a fight of morals with one group of people offended that another group actually has some.
That does seem to me to summarize the bottom line.
People invested in the culture of death and in deceiving the masses into thinking they are agents of light are having conniption fits over battle losses incurred over the last week.
Weapons of Mass Deception will now be deployed in reaction, with ever more fervor, leveraging the gullibility and the ignorance of far too many Americans.
Don't be deceived by these people. Don't be fooled.
Don't be taken in by manipulators and con artists hell bent on doing whatever they can do to maintain their power.
Haven't we been fooled enough by these people since 2008?
