US court curbs birth control mandate http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/28093756
NOT OK !
Allows company to violate citizens’ rights.
Company had provided in America. And must abide by American rights, and allow workers, indiscriminate of employee religion to fulfill their freedoms and rights.
Healthcare, anyway, should NOT be tired into employment in any way !
Also allows for full discrimination in who they hire, or who would feel comfortable working there.
Also allows company to skimp on plans offered, effectively discriminating against women, and religious rights, and healthcare rights, at the benefit of their pocketbook, or their zoit belief. Can create an environment of “in the club” discriminatory hires. And this, in conjunction with profit, can have dangerous consequences. If a company with great lobby influences were too create such an environment, laws of the nation could be highly influenced. Think of natzies, or anti-black, our any other racist group. Very bad things can come off this.
Precedents open dangerous doors.
Ridiculous that they are even fighting the fact that they don’t “want to offer Amy plan that allows for a patient to have access to..” Absurd. Narrow minded (he’ll, we don’t”want” to pay taxes, either.. I don’t “want”to have an early termination fee in my phone plan, neck, some religions don’t even believe in seeking help from a doctor.. does that mean that if such a “zealot” were to own a business, he has the right to prevent All employees from seeing a doctor?. Some people don’t believe in certain medications, or treatments..those are decisions best left to patients. No plan should Exclude any particular treatment.
It’s not like a particular health plan REQUIRES All its “members” to take contraceptives! Hey, I don’t want my health plan to subsidize addicts of Any kind. How’s that? Or cancer patients. Our anyone with a chronic illness. Heck I don’t even want welfare to be subsidized by my taxes. ESPECIALLY checks written to people just for having Babies! Not Fair.
These religious groups are whining and going WAY too far here. Hey, then, I don’t think a religious group should get any form of tax exemption. Hell (pun intended), they are sitting on some of the largest lots of gold out there. They should do their duty, like the rest of us Citizens, and Business, and pay their share of taxes on that money They collect. Certainly, they aren’t morally higher than any particular citizen. Internally, they too are/have corruption, and hurt/ruin many people’s lives while fostering a pretense of pure and good. Yes there is some of that, too.
Shut up and deal with it. It’s crumbs.
Actually, it’s about a bigger fight, if master control, and undermining the while system. It’s a sub-plot of world domination.
Maybe religious groups, then, should be responsible for all child related expenses: school, clothes, child care, food, medical, for all children from conception to age 18. Let’s make this fair. Also, make them subsidize (ALL) women’s living expenses, too. As this mindset supports men who dominate women, and leave them subordinate and with few choices, and with little certainty about each and every encounter that they have with a men.
