It was a good decision, in a series of good decisions from the Supreme Court of late.
What did they decide? They decided that small corporations can decide not to provide contraception methods that do not jive with their religious beliefs.
What’s the difference between a large corporation and a small one? They didn’t say, but I would say that the large corporation is a conglomerate and must be deemed to hold the same morals as the underlying society (which by and large approves of contraception).
Of course, the Left is already decrying this as taking away a woman’s right to choose. Hell no. It does no such thing. A woman can choose any method of birth control they want…they just have to pay for it themselves. Have we forgotten that not having someone else pay for you does not equate to you being unable to get it. I have a right to buy a Lamborghini…I just have no ability to pay for it on my own and have yet been able to make the government pass a law where someone else has to buy one for me.
Why have we decided that companies have to provide health care for their employees? They are employees, not children. Here’s a question…do people need healthcare? Eh…debatable. But what we DO need is food and housing. Well, definitely food. So why don’t corporations have the obligation to feed and house their employees… Of course, we did that once. It was called slavery. You work for a company and they provide food, housing, clothing… Now we are about to do the same, but this time the government will eventually hold the chains.
Freedom comes at a cost. That cost is paying your own bills. If you’re not doing that, you live at the mercy of someone else, and you will never have true freedom. I thought everyone learned that growing up. ”As long as you live under my roof, you live under my rules.” Now we DEMAND to live under someone else’s roof. I will never understand the new generation…
Long Live the Constitution!
