"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)
Mega likes for amazingly well done satire that shows the absurdity of the thought process. If not satire.......wow. Just...wow.
No they shouldn't force a shop owner to sell pork. Then again, they shouldn't force a business to provide a health care plan that provides contraceptives. Sadly what they shouldn't do doesn't always jive with what they do do.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
The employer has no right to know what exactly the employee is doing in their free time. Privacy laws enforce the confidentiality of the patient and their right to obtain medical care without the knowledge of the employer. If an employee is using birth control it is none of the employers business according to the law.
Allowing such restrictions is dangerous and hedges liberty extremely. AN employer could abuse such restrictions by simply denying medical treatment that would have saved an employees life for whatever reasons. Ones employer is not your HMO.
