This Open Thread Goes Out To The SCOTUS Hobby Lobby Ruling

Here SCOTUS, let me sing you the song of my birth control-seeking people.

One reply on “This Open Thread Goes Out To The SCOTUS Hobby Lobby Ruling”

I read an opinion piece that suggested rulings like this will make individual exchanges more palatable to Americans, which might be a silver lining here. If different employers offer widely disparate insurance plans, it makes more sense to get your own.

I also find it interesting that while employer-sponsored healthcare does not have to cover contraception, Hobby Lobby is fine with investing in the pharmaceutical companies that manufacture contraceptives using employee pension funds.

Giving a corporation the right to use the RFRA to mandate how their employees use their benefits (and yes, health insurance is an employee benefit just like salary and paid time off) is a shitty precedent to set. And it absolutely is politically motivated.
