    They believe not just that abortion is wrong they also believe that these four contraceptive methods are abortion.
    BTW they are not.
    So a ruling based on the freedom of religion has more to do with belief than science? No way! Really???

    The ruling may seem that narrow ... but precedence of law looks at the process by which that ruling was decided. This is why Ginsberg described it as " a decision of startling breadth."
    The danger here is that any employer now has no burden of prove anything about any medical procedure. They merely need to say they believe it is something that is contrary to their religious convictions. A SCOTUS ruling sets legal precedence for lower courts to base their decisions.

    Secondly, no, because sharia also means that you cut off peoples' hands for stealing. It is not just a law affecting whether or not a certain medication is dispensed, it also dictates that you're going to behave in a certain way towards yourself and others. Not to mention that if you're a non-muslim, you'll be killed should you offend the muslim store owner. You must accept your role as a dhimmi.
    Oxymoron?

    Re: If an Employer Believes In Sharia Law

    Is this monumentally stupid thread supposed to be a clever comparison to the hobby lobby case? Because it's not.

    In the Hobby Lobby case any woman that works for Hobby Lobby can still get any form of birth control available in this country. Hobby Lobby may not pay for it but they are in no way forcing their religious views on the women that work for them.

    So to the OP.

    THREAD FAIL!

    YOU LOSE!

    DO NOT PASS GO!

    Yeah now any employer will not need to prove anything. All they need do is state they believe something is true and they win.
    Contraception is not abortion. HL didn't have to prove that it is ...they only had to state that they "BELIEVE" that it is.

    Liberals and socialists are big on imposing things but under what constitutional provision do you believe that a business can impose a religious belief on employees? If you're trying to build off the Hobby Lobby ruling, you're playing at a false equivalency. Hobby Lobby in no way is imposing their religious beliefs on their employees - their employees are free to get pregnant and have as many chemical or surgical abortions as they desire, provided their work doesn't suffer and they pay for it themselves. The only one imposing anything was the government, on Hobby Lobby.

    You have also missed the thrust of the SCOTUS decision.
    Since you want to project as an expert on the SC decision, perhaps you can tell us where in the ruling it forbids Hobby Lobby employees from using or purchasing any kind of birth control or chemical abortion drug.

    From what I've heard, the four medicines are something like the morning after pill. One of them might even be that, because nobody here seems interested in mentioning the names. These medicines terminate a fertile cell, if I'm not mistaken. That could be difined as an abortion by some, and apparently it is.

    And let's take a second to remember that the Supreme Court will still be made up of rational, thinking human beings whenever someone else wants an exemption from providing some kind of health care. For example, nobody is going to let McDonalds cancel coverage for Cancer treatment because they're a Buddhist corporation.
