Anti-Democracy advocate, Mixed government is the only good government
THE second point to be examined is, whether the [constitutional ]convention were authorized to frame and propose this mixed Constitution.
Doesn't this really just come down to that (mostly) those on the left believe that if a business owner is not willing to provide free birth control to their employees, that the business owner is infringing on their rights...
Rather then looking at it correctly and saying that the government forcing a business owner to provide birth control to their employees is infringing on the rights of the business?
I don't believe any business is saying that their employees are forbidden from taking birth control.. Are they? If they are then I would agree that the business owner is infringing on the rights of their employees.

Furthermore, if the employee objects on religious grounds of having to pay for a health insurance policy that contains a birth control provision, he has an out-option available to him same as his employer or any other religious organization - apply for a waiver which would be his opt-out clause. If Hobby Lobby wins this case, such a ruling would in effect give employers (of large corporations) too much control over the personal and religious rights of their employees. It would be no different than the "government intruding in your personal life". Only replace "government" with "YOUR EMPLOYER".

I don't particularly see it as an intrusion in any way. The employee still has the option to be on BC all they want, just not to expect his employer to provide.It would be no different than the "government intruding in your personal life". Only replace "government" with "YOUR EMPLOYER".
If the employer said "if you work here, you are not allowed to be on BC" that would be an intrusion in my view. to say, "if you work here, do not expect me to provide you BC", is not an intrusion.
