Today the US Supreme Court ruled that business owners may cite religious beliefs to be exempt from federal law that requires private companies to provide health insurance that covers birth control. The decision means employees of such such companies will have to obtain certain forms of birth control from other sources.
The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 along partisan lines in favor of two plaintiffs. One was arts-and-crafts retailer Hobby Lobby, which is owned and operated by evangelical Christians David and Barbara Green. The other was Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp., which is owned and operated by Norman and Elizabeth Hahn, who are Mennonites.
Ironically, while the Supreme Court has just allowed for-profit corporations to restrict women's reproductive health care for superstitious reasons, they are not allowed to restrict men's reproductive health care, including coverage for Viagra.
The idea that a corporation is a "person" is absurd.
Pardon my ignorance, but could somebody maybe answer a few questions for me? I always find the American system of health care and medical insurance very confusing :/
Is the contraceptive pill/morning after pill difficult to obtain in the US? Is it expensive to get it without insurance?
Here in Ireland I can just go to my G.P to get a prescription for the contraceptive pill (€50-60 for consultation, another €50-60 for a 6 month supply of the pill, ) PlanB/Morning -after pill can be bought without a prescription at a pharmacy. I'm not 100% sure of the cost but I think its about €20.00.
For a 25 year old woman these are the average lifetime costs for uninsured and insured women are given below. The first amount is for uninsured women and the second number is for women with health insurance covering the costs (source: Mother Jones). You can go there, plug in another age and get results for any other age. Clearly, sterilization is the big money-saver.

health insurance is an organized crime circumstance and so is birth control
the supreme court where there is something different happening is understanding from the location that is the cia
arts and crafts, cafeteria food and non catholic christians are hospital circumstances aware to Mayo
there is something relating life together according to how they are knowledged alive with what is understandable as a ruling by the supreme court, allowed to be said as moving something along
something is happening to support these locations to be alive at positions or compiled as an area of the environment, wrapped, out of sight, out of understanding ability, the same as the dimension that holds classified data in bins ordered by unacceptable sight and sound, it can't be seen, you can't "break in" it is an always pen
the hospital circumstance does not see or use the word birth control, while there is chemistry that relates to it by another same reputation and function - miscarriage. The cia also does not use the word birth control and they use the word menstruation - it is all the same. The understanding about what is happening with women who are pregnant and with women who are birthed, not being the same image, is inferior. control is the understanding culprit as are schedules and planning. those non rhythmic state-ings are horse manure, allowed to be living in a combustion circumstance and there isn't anyone alive right now that "believes" in it
people alive aware to the word atheist are relating to health never at hospitals and always at what is and relates to whole farms and always wise midwifes. there is something disagreeable about what has been alive at some areas known as inferior information about women and pregnancy. someone could use themselves to write something whole about who gets pregnant, never written as artificial, and who has babies as well as other life, so it can be done where it is aware to you
leaving is not interesting and it has been used temporarily to promote unexplainable change to highschool and highway patrol circumstances aware to good camps, whole chemical hydration of plants and vegetables, whole conduction dogs, pleasant parks and high aware courses of all presentations, as always, there is one understanding uniting life together to see and experience what is interesting forever. Nothing relates to an ending to consciousness while some things get provided out of sight
Consciousness is interesting

Wow. Reading that, I feel like I had a stroke or something.
Unseen by some is interesting, seeing and being seen by All conscious continuously is the rhythmic experience that is writing code whole scripted as :Alleluia:
Movement is interesting and so is rhythmic motion
Unseen () Thank you
The process by which someone is placed unseen either by everyone or only by life that is not interesting to be seen by and experience with is interesting relating now
where it is true that you can write about how that happens, and it can be at another venue, such as the CIA website, this can move you to a related set, an always identity
really is grande
So is really good weed.
