My Turn: Hobby Lobby decision should outrage Alaskans | Juneau Empire – Alaska’s Capital City Online Newspaper   Leave a comment

My Turn: Hobby Lobby decision should outrage Alaskans | Juneau Empire – Alaska’s Capital City Online Newspaper.

What Mark does not get … what the Democrats in general do not get … is that Hobby Lobby is not denying contraceptive coverage to its employees. There are 20 different kinds of “contraceptives” required to be covered under ACA. Hobby Lobby objected to four because they do not prevent pregnancy, but rather allow conception to occur and then chemically abort the resulting zygot.

These are not contraception. They are abortificients.

And, I am anything BUT outraged that I don’t have to pay for someone else’s abortion. There are still 16 methods for actually preventing pregnancy available that Hobby Lobby and other Christian employers should be fine with providing.

For the record, most evangelical Christians support the use of contraception, but oppose abortion and abortificients.

I this is yet another reason I won’t be voting for Mark.

Supreme Court Birth Control (2)http://www.latimes.com/nation/nationnow/la-na-nn-supreme-court-contraceptives-20140613-story.html

For the record, I’m a woman. I’ve been married nearly 30 years, I have two children spaced six years apart and my husband and I have sex regularly.

At no time in our 30 years together has our medical insurance covered contraception. For most of those years, our combined incomes have made us middle-middle class and during some of those years, we’ve been solidly lower-middle-class.

Yet, we somehow only have two children. The first one was born seven years after our marriage. The second one was born six years later. Both were planned. Yes, we use contraception to prevent pregnancy and yes, we pay for it ourselves. For the record, the contraception methods we’ve used do not permit conception and then chemically or mechanically abort a zygot (the beginnings of a human baby). We take responsibility for our own sexuality and for the children we produce through sharing that awesome experience with one another.

The world will not end of Hobby Lobby’s Christian owners are not required to pay for the abortificients of their sexually-careless employees. It won’t end if couples have to go on buying their own contraception. The birth rate won’t increase. Women will not be forced into domestic servitude. People will still be free to use contraception for the prevention of pregnancy.

All that’s happened is that the Supreme Court has recognized the right of people of faith to not participate in the murder of children. Now, if we can stop forcing me to pay for abortions through my federal income taxes ….
