Supreme Court won´t block
Obama health law´s
contraception mandate

The Hill [Washington DC], by Sam Baker

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/26/2012 9:14:55 PM

The Supreme Court on Wednesday refused to block the Obama administration´s contraception mandate from taking effect. Justice Sonia Sotomayor rejected a request for an emergency injunction that would have shielded employers from the mandate. The request was filed by Hobby Lobby, an arts-and-crafts chain. The company´s Catholic owners say the contraception mandate violates their religious freedom. Hobby Lobby might eventually win on that point, Sotomayor said, but the company didn´t meet the standard for an injunction blocking the mandate from taking effect.

The owners aren´t Roman Catholic unless I´m mistaken. I´m pretty sure I´ve read that they are, however, evangelical Christians who are pro-life and, like the Roman Catholic Church, are against artificial contraception. Really, The Hill needs to do their homework. Shame on them.

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof...
So, Catholics and Evangelicals have had their Constitutional rights taken away.
To them, they have a choice, God´s Law vs. Man´s Law.
Damn the Supreme Court for failing the People.

I believe the owners are evangelical Christians, not Roman Catholic, and I don´t know if they care that much about contraceptives per se like condoms and the pill, at least as far as married couples go. However, they don´t want to pay for the so-called morning after pill which is, in effect, an abortifacient.

Request for injunction in a court district overseen by one of the SC´s leftists was doomed for failure. Hopefully a Catholic university or hospital in a federal court district overseen by a Scalia will be granted the necessary injunction before the 1/1/13 abortifacient mandate begins.

As said many times, elections have consequences.

Of course, if every woman in America had to wear a Sonia Sotomayor mask 24/7 there would be no need for any further contraception. Or a Hilary mask, or Pelosi, etc.

I found this somewhat telling, I guess I was the only one. They usually refrain from making any remarks like this.

Keep in mind, this was only the emergency injuction, not the case.

Telling, indeed.

Requiring a church to provide something contrary to the religous views of the church is clearly a violation of the First Amendment. As to an ordinary employer, there are legal requirements they must deal with if they want to conduct business...e.g. a home builder cannot refuse to sell to an unmaried couple, even if the builder´s religion forbids unmarried couples from living together. Cab drivers cannot refuse to transport folks carrying liquor even if their religion forbids drinking.

I understand that this was an emergency injunction and not the case, but in the meantime what are business owners of faith to do, put their convictions on hold? Close up shop?

When do the requirements to provide these contraceptive services take effect?

They´re giving out free condums in Philly because there´s a surge in STD cases.The left never deals with the behavior problems but use taxpayer money to put a patch on it.

the government could have made available online coupons to get free contraceptives instead of dumping it on insurance companies.

I don´t think there´s that many women who have private healthcare that needs the government to do their thinking for them. This was all symbolic to make the left appear to be the champion of women´s rights.It worked,young women fell for this,hook,line and sinker.

Sotomayor is of little experience and has probably never read the U.S. Constitution. She was selected solely for her leftist views which have nothing to do with adherence to existing law.

Our country has been hijacked.

Just like Roberts, the wise latina is simply doing the bidding of her wiseass boss. When the executive branch holds power over the judicial, the law is pretty much meaningless.

BISMARCK, N.D. — A federal judge on Wednesday overturned a North Dakota law that bans abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can be as early as six weeks into pregnancy and before many women know they’re pregnant. U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland said the law is “invalid and unconstitutional” and that it “cannot withstand a constitutional challenge.” The state attorney general said he was looking at whether to appeal the decision by the Bismarck-based judge. North Dakota is among several conservative states that have passed new abortion restrictions in recent years, but abortion rights supporters called

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
