Those hypocrites have no problem making money off of companies that manufacture BC.

This according to Mother Jones’ Molly Redden:

Documents filed with the Department of Labor and dated December 2012 (see above)—three months after the company’s owners filed their lawsuit—show that the Hobby Lobby 401(k) employee retirement plan held more than $73 million in mutual funds with investments in companies that produce emergency contraceptive pills, intrauterine devices, and drugs commonly used in abortions. Hobby Lobby makes large matching contributions to this company-sponsored 401(k).


The following is a summation of the companies manufacturing these products that are held by the Hobby Lobby employee retirement plan, as set forth by Ms. Redden’s remarkable reporting:

These companies include Teva Pharmaceutical Industries, which makes Plan B and ParaGard, a copper IUD, and Actavis ACT -0.1%, which makes a generic version of Plan B and distributes Ella. Other holdings in the mutual funds selected by Hobby Lobby include Pfizer PFE +0.03%, the maker of Cytotec and Prostin E2, which are used to induce abortions; Bayer , which manufactures the hormonal IUDs Skyla andMirenaAstraZeneca AZN +0.28%, which has an Indian subsidiary that manufacturesProstodin, Cerviprime, and Partocin, three drugs commonly used in abortions; and Forest Laboratories, which makes Cervidil, a drug used to induce abortions. Several funds in the Hobby Lobby retirement plan also invested in Aetna AET -0.84% and Humana, two health insurance companies that cover surgical abortions, abortion drugs, and emergency contraception in many of the health care policies they sell.

Hobby lobby only objected to morning after pills and IUDs--not all forms of birth control.  I'm not seeing what the big outrage this is.  If a woman really wants to get either of these items its not going to break her financially to get them on her own.  It would be different if HB said they wouldn't cover out of wedlock prenatal care or something like that.  Save the outrage for things that really matter....

A white older man whose opinions I usually like and respect just said Hobby Lobby and the courts decision is worse than Plessy.

Why did he feel the need to compare? And since he did I'm annoyed

Yet these companies dont mind their insurance covering male enhancement drugs and penis pumps.

Dig deeper.  This case wasn't only about birth control.  It was about giving a closely held corporation, a strictly for profit entity, religious freedom.  Not people...a corporation.  That is terrifying.  

People forget that benefits are not a gift that employers give to their employees.  It's a part of their paycheck.  Back in the day, it was hard to give bigger paychecks to employees, so they enticed job hunters with benefits like healthcare.  This is really the equivalent of your boss telling you what you can and can't do with your money.  This has nothing to do with what a woman can and can't afford.   This will have some deep repercussions.
