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....
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.
