    Well, they could go others ways, but those are far less pleasant. They could:
    1) not insure anyone (and pay the fine, which is less than the cost of the insurance).
    2) restructure the company into franchise so that each location becomes it's own business and they don't run into the 50 employee requirement to insure.
    3) close their doors and put all those folks out of work. I'm sure the owners have enough money to retire comfortably.

    Businesses should not have to be responsible for funding their employees sexual exploits.

    And with smoking being one of the leading causes of death in the US, nobody ever gets upset that health insurance won't generally cover smoking cessation drugs/aids.

    At least now we have an honest portrayal of the "anti-abortion" movement. It's just like the Popes. All birth control is "murder" and every sperm is sacred.
    Good luck selling that, over 90% of Catholic women are murderers then.

    Because they don't work. None of the "aids" have over a 10% success rate. Can you imagine a birth control method that unreliable?
    Oh wait... that would be the "rhythm method"

    People are entitled to their beliefs, including the idea that Barrack Obama has the right to tell Americans what they must do with their own after tax money. Others have different beliefs.

    Perhaps this is best left to the conscience of the individual, or has that idea become too old fashioned in the United States today?

    Or they could just keep their noses out of their employees bedrooms.

    That's exactly what the law does. It leaves the choice of using birth contol up to the individual not a Corporation.

    Okay, well, one of the leading causes of accidental death and injury is still slipping in the tub. Should employers be required to fund tub stickies?

    That's what they're trying to do, but the governement wants to require the business to fund those bedroom activities.
