Hobby Lobby covers circa sixteen out of twenty forms of contraception. From the hissy fit thrown by the left, you’d think the Supremes has just ruled in favor of mandatory female genital mutilation, or something, from John McCormack, Weekly Standard:
On Monday evening, Hillary Clinton said that she found the Supreme Court’s ruling in the Hobby Lobby case “deeply disturbing.” Clinton added that “it’s very troubling that a salesclerk at Hobby Lobby who needs contraception, which is pretty expensive, is not going to get that service through her employer’s health care plan because her employer doesn’t think she should be using contraception.”
Contrary to Clinton’s assertion Hobby Lobby’s owner “doesn’t think [women] should be using contraception,” the family-owned business covers the entire cost of 16 out of 20 FDA-approved contraceptives under its insurance plan. The company’s owners simply objected to covering pills or devices that may cause the death of a human embryo.
The Smartest Woman in the World, worth over five million dollars, with an eight million dollar book deal, and who commands speaking fees north of two hundred thousand dollars per speech, somehow thinks that a nine dollar per month prescription is “pretty expense.” Maybe Mrs. Clinton can donate some her two hundred thousand dollar speaking fees to buy contraceptives for the poor Sandra Flukes of the world?
Reax, Allah Pundit, Hot Air:
I knew the Democratic nominee-in-waiting was going to lay it on with a trowel — hot-button SCOTUS case tailor-made for corporation-bashing and “war on women” crap? — but good lord. She’s an inch away here from comparing the Roberts Court to the Taliban. Lying about Hobby Lobby’s willingness to cover contraception is a nice touch too. When you’ve built up a narrative head of steam like she has here, there’s no sense letting facts derail it.
It appears the Clinton’s, B.J and Mrs., were for religious freedom, before they were opposed to it.
