Obama Admin Finds Way Around Hobby Lobby Birth Control Decision

The Obama administration on Friday issued its final rules for employers who morally object to covering birth control in their health insurance plans.

by  for Huffington Post:

The accommodation ensures that all employed women, unless they work for a place of worship, will still have their birth control covered at no cost to them, even if their employers refuse to cover it.

Under the new rule, a closely held for-profit company that objects to covering contraception in its health plan can write a letter to the Department of Health and Human Services stating its objection. HHS will then notify a third-party insurer of the company’s objection, and the insurer will provide birth control coverage to the company’s female employees at no additional cost to the company.

“Women across the country should have access to preventive services, including contraception,” HHS Secretary Sylvia Burwell said in a statement. “At the same time, we recognize the deeply held views on these issues, and we are committed to securing women’s access to important preventive services at no additional cost under the Affordable Care Act, while respecting religious beliefs.”

    • Underdog_Is_Here

      You would be correct. The Romans had 2 words for adult males. ‘Vir’ means man, and is a derivative of the word ‘virtus,’ virtue. The other word is ‘homo,’ and it means, basically, ‘all those not worthy of being called vir.’ Thus, a man without virtue is nothing but a homo. True story. 😉

        Another fairy tale about Barack Obama.HE ISN’T BLACK.MATH TIME.
        Mother 100% white, Father 1/2 Arabic,1/2 black by census Department that makes Barack 1/4 black and he can’t legally refer to himself as black man . he is considered mixed race. by the way his father was an ARABIC SLAVE TRADER

        STRANGE HOW THE AFRICANS PUT THERE OWN PEOPLE INTO SLAVERY< AND A WHITE MAN FREED THEM. DON'T YOU FIND THAT STRANGE and why they still call the White people RACIST???hummmmm.

          Strange how nobody in the msm has bothered to point out that he is only 1/4 African, huh? I wonder if all of his “bros” out there would still support him if they knew that he is more white than black?

          And now that we are eradicating everything from our nation that had anything to do with slavery, it would be a good time to eradicate him from the presidency!

    • JoAnn Graham

      Because they are all “career politicians” and part of the SAME CORRUPT SYSTEM, Mike H1776. That is why we need to MAKE SURE that the next GOP Presidential nominee is one of the THREE candidates who are NOT professional politicians–that would be Dr. Ben Carson, Donald Trump, or Carly Fiorino.

        THEY BLEW IT NOW THEY WANT TO MAKE NICE? TO LATE.THEY knew about all the criminal action that Obama was committing and did nothing but TALK,TALK,TALK. NO ACTION JUST TALK.NOW THAT WE KNOW THE ILLUMINATI PUT HIM IN AND NOT THE PEOPLE HE IS IN BY FRAUDULENT ACTIONS. And CONGRESS KNEW IT.

        OUR GOVERNMENT HAVE LOST OUR TRUST IN THEM.

      • DeadMessenger

        Those choices stink. Carson is the only one I’d even consider voting for. Trump is a Clinton Foundation contributor. He’s only “running” to water down the conservative selection pool. Fiorino is not really conservative.

        At the end of the day, it probably won’t matter anyway. Pervasive election fraud will ensure that.

        • JoAnn Graham

          Maybe NONE of them re ideal, but any ONE of them would be better than another lying “career” politician!

          Umm no. Are YOU? And do you know God, or do you just use His name in vain?

          • bluebonnet114

            you do seem pretty hostile, I do know GOD is my Savior and I was taught to NEVER use his name in van…….of the five words I used, none were used to use HIS name in van.
            I also am not stupid, I am not fooled by donald trump.
            I do not think I addressed my remark to you, but it is okay, Thanks for your comment.

          • Dorrie

            I never intentionally insult, bluebonnet, but saying “OMG” is using God’s name in vain. I learned that the most painful way so I try to pass on the information – especially to people who are believers. It’s too easy to to go the way of the world – even in small ways. It’s SO important to curb the inclination!

            Be well and Shabbat Shalom 🙂

            I don’t believe men are stupid, but you certainly can’t be fixed.

      • Mike H1776

        Ben Carson just is to soft spoken to me and I am afraid that nothing would get done, I like him as a man and some of what he says is dead on right, but being right and getting right are two different things, maybe if Obozo had not screwed this country up so bad I could vote for him but I think right now we need someone with a lot of Guts, Christian, Military back ground and understands that Trade agreements have destroyed this country. So what we really need is to clean out DC and start fresh. which is what I believe you were saying now that I think about it, lol.

    Now is when the SCOTUS MUST place a Contempt of Court Ruling against HHS and the Executive Branch of the Federal Government for usurping authority they do not have. SCOTUS, if you have any legitimacy left you will immediately hold the President in Contempt of Court.

    • JoAnn Graham

      Trouble is, they have precious LITTLE “legitimacy” left, after the QUESTIONABLE LEGALITY of two of their latest decisions, Retired MSgt USAF.

      • Retired MSgt USAF

        That is why I put in the Legitimacy Question. Most of the Circuit Courts of Appeals have lost theirs already. The SCOTUS lost it on MOST of it’s past months decisions.

        • carlcasino

          Come-on Sarge? This is the 21 century and the definition of is has changed. I’m waiting for the Supremes to redefine MAY & SHALL. When that occurs The 2nd Amendment is DEAD and the 1st will follow soon after.

          • Retired MSgt USAF

            Come on carl.
            It does not matter if this is the 16th Century or the 25th Century. Words have meaning, and if you cannot see that then maybe you are just a naïve person. All words have meanings. The ORIGINAL INTENT of the words AT THE TIME they were written is what counts. whether you like it or not. The Constitution, for example, is written for a time when things were different, but the CAREFULLY worded sentence structure and the Original intent are still there, whether you agree with that or not. Facts are Facts.
            The 2nd Amendment is not dead and neither are all of the rest of the Amendments or the text of the Original Document. Including the reason for the Amendments. The 1st Clause of the 14th Amendment is clear that it was written specifically for freed slaves. Any other purpose for those words is a sham, a lie that they were written for anchor babies or for Gays. If you bother to do the research and look into the reasons for Amendments at the time they were written they all have specific purposes. Nothing different with the 2nd Amendment.

            Last June 26th!

          • Leslie Leonard

            Gee that’s funny. Webster must not have gotten that memo to change the definition of words on demand. If that is all we have to do now then I have a few that I would like for them to change:
            Earn= when a person is breathing and idle and allowed all of what the Smiths have without working.
            Christian= a lunatic that believes in something most of society no longer wants to because then they know they will have to answer for not doing what they are suppose to morally or ethically.
            Socialism= what the United States started becoming around
            the year 2012

            It is obvious why words are words and cannot be changed to suit an agenda. If words can be changed to alter the meaning then the three that I listed should be changed to what the left wants also. It would NEVER stop.

  • futurelife

    A coup is here and soon martial law unless the people of these States get up their own military and start to fight this evil government.

  • JoAnn Graham

    Of course “the Obama administration” AND this article are COMPLETELY IGNORING the fact that the ONLY “contraception” Hobby Lobby objected to were the so-called “morning after” ABORTION PILLS.

    As far as “finding a way around” ANYTHING, Obama is like a SNAKE–he can always twist and turn and wind his CROOKED WAY around ANYTHING he doesn’t like.

    Don’t kill what God object to, our babies are Gods babies , if you kill babies, you have to know God will destroy you , you will be deemed to hell , with satan, the Bible says. thy shall NOT KILL!!!!!

    • futurelife

      I agree but the word is “murder” not kill as the Bible says, war and accidents do happen so it is what should have been “murder”.

      • Laura Lee

        NO… it is “kill”. God is the only one who can make that determination. In the NT time… Jesus Christ does not legitimate war at all. Moreover, when there is no intent to kill… and one is killed… it’s called accidental death… not killing. If I am driving my car and my car crashes into yours… and you die… I did not kill you. You died an accidental death. It was an accident and you died. I did not kill you.

  • ibelieveinfreedom2

    This is totally absurd as Hobby Lobby did not refuse to pay for birth control, in fact they cover many. What they refused to pay for was ABORTIFACIENT DRUGS which kiII the baby AFTER CONCEPTION. These drugs are used for no other purpose.

      Exactly!

  • sandraleesmith46

    It wasn’t BC pills that were objected to; it was abortifactants! And we STILL end up paying for those poisons! You want it, YOU PAY for it or learn to say NO!

  • Daryl Watson

    Simple solution for Hobby Lobby. Stop paying for employees health care and adjust their pay for the amount Hobby Lobby was paying for insurance.

  • Steven Mathews

    I really don’t see a need for free availability of birth control pills or treatment. Women already have birth control means freely available in most circumstances. If any person doesn’t want to face the natural consequence of having sex they can simply refrain from having sex.

  • psiEnergos

    Oh boy, more bypassing Congress and just rewriting law in the White house. I don’t even care about the contraception issue, it’s the principle of the thing. This executive fiat needs to be checked or its going to set a precedent for other presidents (left or right).

  • Bobtrhn

    SCREW YOU VIRGINIA.

  • xmaniac

    It’s a little misleading. Hobby Lobby did not object to their insurance paying for birth control. The problem they had was paying for drugs and services that led to abortions.

  • falling321

    There is no such thing as a ‘free’ add on! Someone is paying for it starting with increased insurance premium for everyone, starting with Hobby Lobby and it’s employees. And the article neglects to mention that HL provides coverage for all but three of the multitude of birth control methods and maternity benefits that Obamacare mandates that all men and even 93 year old nuns must pay for!

  • Leslie Leonard

    That shows how ignorant this administration is. You can walk into any planned parenthood building and get birth control. Stop all the freaking whining because I am really sick of having the government overstep its boundaries and forcing people to do things that they have no business sticking their nose into!!
