The Hobby Lobby Supreme Court decision has come under a lot of flak, and deservedly so, for restricting upon women’s reproductive rights. (The Hobby Lobby health insurance plan pays for Viagra and vasectomies, for the record, but not IUDs or Plan B, neither of which will actually terminate a pregnancy.) But the repercussions of this decision extend far beyond the babymaker.
The above infographic demonstrates just how much your corporation’s religious beliefs can impede on your own health and well-being. And before you get all uppity and tell me “Then you should buy another plan” or “You should read what your plan covers,” let me ask you–and be honest with yourself: Have you ever read through Facebook’s terms of service? Or an iTunes agreement? No? Okay then. And do you think most full-time retail employees have the time, resources or education necessary to go through this or hire lawyers to clear it for them? No? And you probably agree then, that this is Obama’s fault, just like the crappy economy that’s preventing them from getting a job with upward mobility, right? (I’m assuming here, but those groups tend to overlap.)
Then by all means, take a seat. Especially if you’re fearful of Sharia Law, because guess what? That could affect your own access to anesthesia someday. And frankly, you probably deserve it for being so shortsighted and ignorant as to let this happen.
