Hobby Lobby and Contraception Coverage

It's very important to note that Leftists deal in distortions/lies.

The truth is their enemy.

For example, the Hobby Lobby case:

What a load!

Sandra Fluke's statement is flat-out false.

The Supreme Court did NOT rule that "bosses can deny employees coverage of birth control."

Leftists like Fluke and Leftist hacks in the media are truly running amok on this case.

In their coverage of the Supreme Court ruling in the Hobby Lobby case, no mainstream/Leftist media outlet that I heard included the fact that Hobby Lobby provides coverage for 16 of 20 contraceptives for its employees.

Yes, Hobby Lobby is paying for contraceptive coverage for its employees.

From Townhall:

The Green family has no moral objection to the use of 16 of 20 preventive contraceptives required in the mandate, and Hobby Lobby will continue its longstanding practice of covering these preventive contraceptives for its employees. However, the Green family cannot provide or pay for four potentially life-threatening drugs and devices. These drugs include Plan B and Ella, the so-called morning-after pill and the week-after pill. Covering these drugs and devices would violate their deeply held religious belief that life begins at the moment of conception, when an egg is fertilized.
Get that?

Hobby Lobby DOES pay for contraceptives for its employees.

The Court ruled that the Green family does not have to PAY for abortifacients for its employees.

Good. That's a victory for religious liberty and the First Amendment.

It's ridiculous to suggest that the Court ruled that employers can impose their religious beliefs on their employees.

That's absolutely insane.

On his radio program yesterday, Mark Levin highlighted a crazy comment by Jeffrey Toobin, a lawyer and legal analyst for CNN.

JEFFREY TOOBIN: Ruth Bader Ginsburg's dissenting opinion is devoted to the proposition that [the ruling] is not narrow, that the idea that a privately held company can exercise religious beliefs in deciding which benefits and which customers to deal with is potentially a very broad idea.
Say what???

The Hobby Lobby ruling has absolutely nothing to do with "customers."

Toobin, as a lawyer, should know better than to twist this ruling like that.

I hate the Left's spin game and lies.
