    All this talk about "religious freedom" - until it is someone elses religious freedom that is involved.

    amazing what the Obama administration is getting away with. This country needs more children not fewer. There won't be anyone to pay for the debt.

    Where does it say in the constitution that the government should be involved in dictating to employers what kind of benefits they must provide for their employees? Shouldn't that be between the employer and the employee. It's an issue I've had with Obamacare ever since it came up and no one has ever been able to explain it to me.

    As a small business owner, I would never enforce my religious views on my employee's! Do the owners want all of their employee's to act and practice the same way they do?

    Welcome to life under a dictatorship--we have no freedom, and religious freedom is the least respected of the Bill of Rights freedoms. Obama has no respect for religious freedom, he is a Marxist, and Marxists despise religion and religious freedom. Let's all get real here, we may have to take up arms again to win back the freedoms our founders fought and died for and signed into the Constitution.

    The Supreme Court has ruled that this mandate is constitutionally valid. If this ruling does not sit well with the owners of the corporations they can simply drop health care coverage, pay the fine, and move on. The Health Care System in this country is already slowly moving to a single-payer system.

    Liberals were all for civil disobedience and freedom of conscience during the 1960s when they were protesting against the Draft and the Vietnam War. Today, their commitment to those principles seems to have mysteriously disappeared.

    The Supreme Court has allowed private organizations and businesses to make political donations, produce advertisements, etc under the right to "free speech". Why don't these same organizations have freedom of religion as well? Hobby Lobby is only objecting ot one type of birth control, and a controverial one at that. How do private organizations have some rights and not others? It is becoming clearer and clearer in this "politically correct" world that rights are protected as long as a certain segment of society agrees with them.

    I think that is fine... provided there is full disclosure at time of hiring to how there are exemptions to their healthcare policy. The "Pill" on the other hand is no longer just used for contraception, but also for regulating irregular cycles for many women, and should be part of a standard policy. Just my opinion..... but I do think people should have the right to opt out of plans that include abortion services - which the day after pill is a for of - al be it very loosely.
