    The Supreme Court rules in favor of Hobby Lobby, rules it will not have to pay for contraception as part of its health insurance package for employees.

    Hope this thread will not get locked because I am really interested in the reaction around here...birth control pills are available for $9 a month at Target and elsewhere. This is a win for religious freedom and a common sense decision...despite the ruling coming down 5-4 along ideological lines.

    Millions of harpies who've never been to Hobby Lobby have already announced their boycott on Twitter.

    There is a powerful cult of ignorance in this country ... good to see its encroachment is being fought.

    They still cover boner pills though right? I'm asking for a friend.

    Yes, but only for married men who promise to only use them with their wives for procreation.

    Definitely not a win for religious freedom, since HL just imposed its religion on its workers.

    This is all a ploy to distract us from Benghazi.

    Can't wait till a company refuses to cover in vitro for a lesbian couple who want to have a baby. After all, the evilness of gay people is a sincerely held religious belief.

    Definitely a win for religious freedom since the government was stopped from imposing its religion on a private company owned by private citizens.

    The same objections raised by Hobby Lobby et al. would obtain there, as well, without touching on (ha!) the same-sex issue. The in vitro procedure, as I understand it, involves the fertilization of multiple eggs but the implantation of only one (typically); the rest are destroyed (either then or later).
