It's a mistake to enable religion in any capacity. It shouldn't even
be an issue in health care. What happens the first time a person is denied

@RanchSoooo... do corporations NOT have the right to be closed on

Your contention that actions of corporations cannot reflect the scruples of

Hutterite: That is a red herring. The transfusion thing was "not an option
for *me*", never was about denying you the option. Medical science has

murder" (in line with their core beliefs) by making me pay for it. Those specific items are not in the law, they are a part of a
bureaucratically established list created in administering the law.

@OlderGregThere are NO abortifacients covered by the ACA mandate.
