yesterday. I learned a few things too;
1. People with no children didn’t think a punishment was in order.
2. Guys thought the punishment was a little stiff.
3. Girls are harder to raise then boys when they are teens.
4. My son is not the only child who has gotten in trouble for fighting at school.
Hobby Lobby and the HHS Mandate
Have you ever been to Hobby Lobby? They have over 500 stores in
41 states so odds are you have one near you or you have at least heard of it. They are a Christian owned and operated business and even though they could make more money, they close their stores on Sunday’s because they believe that Sunday is a Sabbath day. Fareway grocery stores are also Christian owned businesses that are closed on Sundays.
Hobby Lobby is the focus of a legal battle right now for failing
to comply with a health and human service preventative service mandate that states they must provide employees with the morning after pill and the week after pill as part of their insurance plan, without even charging the employee co-pay. If they do not comply, Hobby Lobby will face fines of 1.3 million dollars per day per the Obama aministration. Hobby Lobby claims they cannot just put their religious beliefs aside to comply with this mandate.
Hobby Lobby is not trying to force its religion or beliefs onto people and they are complying with the mandatory birth control ruling. They
simply do not believe in abortion and do not want to provide people with these morning and week after pills. Do you blame them? The Obama administration is calling it a “preventative service” mandate – they only thing it prevents is a child, by killing it nonetheless! I’m not saying the morning after pills should be banned; let people decide on their own if they want to use them. If you make it a part of an insurance policy people will use it just because they can. Birth control prevents pregnancies and if people fail to heed that warning then they should pay for their own abortion drugs.
I’m with Hobby Lobby 100% on this one but I honestly don’t think
they will win in court. Then what, will they close 500 stores? I don’t know how this one will turn out but I see where they are coming from. I blogged a while back about high schools in New York City providing the morning after pills to students who feared they may be pregnant. Is this what our society is coming to? Instead of taking preventative measures to ensure a child is not conceived we just wait and see and terminate the pregnancy if it happens? That is vile, sick, sad and stupid.
But I suppose it will save us some money in the long run because
after all isn’t that what it’s all about? A reduced number of welfare babies to worry about and we can finally start limiting the amount of people on this planet. I wonder how long it will be before taking the morning after pill will be a requirement unless you can prove you have enough money to raise the child.
Hopefully I won’t be around to see that.
