    Hobby Lobby SCOTUS decided?

    Hobby Lobby is a privately owned corporation who objected to the four forms of birth control that could be considered abortion. (Whether it is or isn't is not relevant to this discussion.) What is your view as to what the SCOTUS decided in this case?

    I am unsure. I honestly wonder if SCOTUS knows.

    The SCOTUS decided that a "closely held" corporation could raise a religious objection to a federal law (administrative mandate?).

    If I had to choose who had control over my life, government or corporations... I would choose government. Just because of the slight chance voters would change the government. All this ruling does is give corporations more power which it seems the freedom loving GOP and their minions seem to be lapping up like cat to warm milk. I hope they are okay with corporations controlling their lives, since this is a slippery slope

    corporations don't control anyone's life..

    and really, you do not have a choice over whether government controls your life... they do and there is no way to escape that fact.
    corporations,well....you can choose ,at any time, to completely disassociate with any corporation of your choosing.... for any reason.

    How does a corporation get to control an employees life exactly?

    Re: Hobby Lobby SCOTUS decided?

    Frankly, I don't really see this as being much different from the same purposes of the Hyde Amendment, which was passed back in the 70's, to prevent taxpayer money funding of abortion. I know the intent and method is different, but they are both issues regarding payment for something which is conscientiously objected to, by a certain segment of the population.

    It is about abortion funding, not birth control. If it were about birth control, HL would have objected to the other birth control medications/methods as well as the abortifacients.

    Looks like you have done just that.
    Not only that, corporation control over anybody is irrelevant to the HL decision.
