Is Women’s Freedom Rights Tainted by the Hobby Lobby Case?

According to CBS News, the Supreme Court on Monday ruled that the present President’s administration must exempt firms such as Hobby Lobby from a rule requiring large companies to help pay for their employees’ birth control.

The Hobby Lobby is a large company of over 50 employees who is own by religious menonites who do not agree in paying their female employees for birth control, so they sue the US. government.

CBSnews.com states, “Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. and Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp. — two privately-held, for-profit companies — sued the United States government over a provision in the Affordable Care Act that requires companies with more than 50 employees to provide comprehensive health coverage (including contraception) or pay a fine.

Hobby Lobby’s owners, David and Barbara Green of Oklahoma, say they have strong objections based in their Christian faith to providing health care coverage for certain types of contraception. The Pennsylvania-based Hahn family, the Mennonite owners of Conestoga Wood Specialties, had the same complaint.

The Obama administration already exempted nonprofits with religious affiliations, such as Catholic universities, from the contraception coverage rule.”

So the Supreme Court ruled in their favor 5-4. And now their women employee will not received the same health coverage benefits and protections as their counterparts. Some call this rulling a crase discrimination against females.

Their religious freedom is affected here, because they alla freedom to chose whether they need contraceptive medicine or not, their employees should not chose for them. And don’t get me wrong this has nothing to do with prolife or anything like that, just with the fact that this rullins
excempt companies to pay insurance coverage for their employees contraceptios, but it does not says anything about not providing coverage for esterilizations in males or women.

And to me that is women discrimination and imposing their relegious believes on their employees, thing that the White House is somehow implying to Congress and to the Supreme Court that they wont let it happen.
