Above is a link to a story found on Snopes which a friend of mine pointed out to me after I defended the stand of Hobby Lobby concerning health care.
Below are my FaceBook comments and additional links.
The New York Times: Abortions Qualms on Morning-After Pill May Be Unfounded. The great part about this article is that while they argue for the mandate they state more than once that the pill could end a pregnancy.
I read the article.. 1. Just because this guy says he’s a pastor doesn’t mean he knows what he’s talking about. If there is the slightest possibility the “morning after” pill will end a pregnancy how can you take it? Our FDA says the pill can stop a fertilized egg from implanting. 2. The Snopes is not unbiased. Sure it’s emotional. The guy doesn’t want to pay money out of his pocket so people can kill babies. 3. Neither the government or your employer should have to be responsible for your reproductive choices. 4. Even if everything they claim is true and Hobby Lobby does not want to pay for a contraceptive due to their religious beliefs they shouldn’t have to. Employees are not held prisoners by their employers. They can elect to seek a job where the employer will provide such benefits. This legislation affects churches too. Where does it stop? Where do we draw a line in the sand and say we will not comply. I think abortion is a good place.
