    How so? You can't force your freedom of religion on others.

    Hence, employers can't be forced to provide abortions for their employees.

    The employer isn't telling their employees they can't get an abortion, just that the employer isn't going to pay for it.

    Perhaps the Catholic Church should not engage in activities that put them in this situation. Otherwise, they have a responsibility to provide health insurance and all that goes with it.

    So much for religious freedom.

    You can't tell a person, who operates his own business, that he can't apply his religious convictions when running his business. That would be unconstitutional.

    If a serviceman has the right to claim a contientious objector status, a business owner has the right to refuse to pay for abortions.

    So birth control equals free abortions now?

    Apparently you can. If you want to operate a religious institution where you can apply your ideology/convictions, start a church and don't enter the private sector.

    So if my religion says that I can beat my employees, that's ok right? After all, you shouldn't limit my freedom of religion according to you.

    Do you understand what the, "private", in private sector means. Right?

    According to the religious convictions of some folks, yes it does.
