"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
Was adhering to your faith supposed to be easy?
If they believe offering insurance that supplies birth control that the adherent will not use is so offensive, then surely investing in companies that do not conform is at least as bad -possibly worse, if those companies make abortion pills.
I also don't agree with telling people they can't spend the HSA accounts on valid medical purchases just because you don't think they are valid.
Depends on what you view it as. The court ruled it unconstitutional under the commerce clause. meaning the government can't force you to buy products or services you don't want.Did the court rule that it was unconstitutional?
This was a huge stretch they ruled it constitutional under tax law even though the obama administration maintained it wasn't a tax but a penalty. a penalty would have been unconstitutional, but roberts screwed up and said it was a tax. that was the only way this bill or at least the mandate passed.
This has never been argued in front of the court so there is no ruling. we have anti-slavery laws though in which that is what mandatory servitude is.Did the court rule that the government didn't have the authority?
this isn't a hypocrisy. it is the employee's that are investing in the funds. the funds cover a huge wide variety of sectors in order to spread the risk yet maintain a profitable margin for the investor.
i am sure that there are people here that have invested in companies that they would ideologically oppose does that make them hypocrites? no.
investing based on ideology is about as bad as investing on emotion. it is stupid. i don't invest for those reason i invest to make more money.
Highly unlikely a corporation like HL has the capability to do due diliagance in their scrutinizing investments.
I mean I get that this is a political forum and there are bound to be plenty of partisan hacks on this website but the idea that they've done something wrong because they didn't know their employees 401(k)s contained mutual funds that contained companies who make whatever it is they disagree with is foolish.
Plan B One-Step is contraindicated for use in the case of known or suspected pregnancy.
Definition of contraindication: The presence of a factor or condition that would preclude an intervention, and which, if performed, could cause harm to the patient and be regarded as a negligent act.
If a fetus has formed, and the mother takes Plan B, it has the potential to abort the fetus.
This is what HL objects to.
HL isn't trying to stick its nose in my tent. I don't work for them. Do you?
Contraindications don't mean that it will cause an abortion. The idea that you would greatly screw with the hormone levels of a female whose hormone levels are in flux (due to pregnancy) makes sense. It doesn't mean that it will cause an abortion as the VERY NEXT sentence indicates.
You indicated that the FDA labels says it will cause an abortion and what you quoted isn't it. As a matter of fact it specifically says it does not cause the termination of an existing pregnancy.
The contraindication warning is so that women who are pregnant know the pill may cause a formed fetus to abort.
If you have an objection to what the FDA says, you need to get in touch with them. I'm not with the FDA, sorry.
