They’re anti-woman, because they don’t want to be forced to pay for contraceptives and abortifacient drugs as part of the government mandate for them to purchase health insurance products for their employees.
Women apparently feel discriminated against, because this means that they would have to pay for contraception and abortion-inducing drugs on their own. They shouldn’t have to pay for those things. Everyone knows it’s the employer’s job to provide those things for their female employees. Contraception is an unalienable right, notated somewhere in the Constitution. So is abortion. And that thing in the Declaration of Independence that talks about a “right to life…” doesn’t apply to you if you’re not born yet. So if a mother or a father, or even a doctor, wants to end the life of an unborn child, they all have a license to kill as long as the child isn’t completely born yet.
At least that’s how Democrats see it. CNS News reported on one such Democrat who’s not happy with the Supreme Court decision.
“The government will not violate anyone’s religious beliefs, but no one has the right to discriminate against a woman because of her own beliefs. And I believe that the Supreme Court will find that no business…should be allowed to discriminate against women,” Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-Calif.) told “Fox News Sunday.”
“What about the owner’s right to religious freedom?” host Chris Wallace asked Becerra.
“The owner has a right to his or her religious beliefs,” Becerra conceded, “but that doesn’t mean you get to discriminate against women if women have different beliefs than what the owner has, and the woman wants to exercise her rights under the Constitution.”
I’m curious. Where is killing an unborn child listed as a right under the Constitution? Where are contraceptive devices listed as rights under the Constitution? If you want to buy those sorts of things, that’s your business. But you can’t force your employer to buy them for you as if you’re entitled to them.
I don’t even think businesses should be forcedto provide insurance products for their employers. That should be something that’s optional in a free market. Again, where are health insurance products listed as unalienable rights under the Constitution? They’re not.
The more monopolistic corporations grow, the more power they wield over the government to make laws mandating that everyone become their customers or else face fines. That’s crony capitalism for you.
