“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.”
- Alexander Hamilton. Spiritual father of #NeverTrump
it doesn't apply to one religion it applies to all equally so there is no violation of the establishment clause.
nope what was unconstitutional was government thinking that i can violate peoples religious beliefs and practices.
again it only applies to private companies and non-publicly traded companies and it only applies to contraception.
1) Cheap and readily accessible to everyone - some are, but women can't always take the cheapest generic versions that are readily accessible to the poor. And there's a good reason why there are 20 options and not ONE or TWO.
2) There is no reason whatsoever to make them part of health insurance - they're a basic part of healthcare for women, and an integral part. For some women, pregnancy can be life threatening because of medical conditions, and effective contraception is medically important. In those cases, and in cases where contraception is used for reasons other than pregnancy protection, they're as necessary to be covered by health insurance as antibiotics or drugs for blood pressure, blood sugar, etc. And that's if you don't accept prescription drugs/devices for pregnancy prevention and planning for pregnancies as a damn fine reason to include them as part of health insurance, like almost all other prescription drugs/devices.
it also only applies to non-publicly traded companies.
the only middle finger given was to the government thinking it can override religious freedoms.
contraception is not protected by the constitution but religious freedoms and practices are.
they don't as the ruling only applies to contraception and no other aspects of the law.
For anyone interested, amusing commentary from TYT. Corporations are not just people, but religious people.
Here's another analysis by CDC citing 'typical use failure rate' - CDC - Contraception - Reproductive Health
Male condom—Worn by the man, a male condom keeps sperm from getting into a woman’s body. Latex condoms, the most common type, help prevent pregnancy, and HIV and other STDs, as do the newer synthetic condoms. “Natural” or “lambskin” condoms also help prevent pregnancy, but may not provide protection against STDs, including HIV. Typical use failure rate: 18%
