The following is a series of “conversations” I had with some libs who think companies should be forced to provide free contraception, and that the Hobby Lobby decision was a travesty for women.

I know people who visit bars after work to relax and unwind. They say it’s a form of therapy and contributes to their mental health. Should their health insurance pay for their alcohol???

Did a doctor prescribe it as a health solution or therapy?

No. That’s the whole point. Why not pay for prostitution? Or fight clubs to relieve anger and aggression??? If someone wants to lead a certain lifestyle, THEY should pay for it. Not me!

Birth control is not a trinket for a certain lifestyle, you idiot. And if insurance coverage is part of someone’s compensation package, it’s theirs. It no longer belongs to the employer. Take paid vacations as a good example. An employee can take their paid vacation time and get out and promote Planned Parenthood. It’s none of the employer’s business because that compensation is the sole property of the employee. Cash your check on Friday night and head to the liquor store. It’s all money that goes straight from the employer’s payroll into your hands because you’ve worked for it and it’s now yours. Insurance coverage is part of YOUR compensation package. It doesn’t belong to Hobby Lobby or anyone like it.

Birth control absolutely IS a trinket for a certain lifestyle you moron! Any company that offers employee insurance should be able to decide for THEMSELVES which policies and coverages they offer and agree to pay for. If a current or potential employee doesn’t like the coverage, they have the absolute right to choose another company to work for! The bottom line is, the federal government has NO BUSINESS ordering a company to offer, or an individual to purchase, ANY product of service they do not wish to be involved with. This is about government overreach, not planned parenthood.

The insurance is payment TO the employee in the form of compensation package, just like paid vacation time. According to your logic (I use the term loosely) the employer should find out what the employee does with the rest of his pay check and make sure it’s okay to spend their compensation that way. And as for government overreach, use that argument when you decide to stop buying auto insurance.

I have a CHOICE whether to drive a car or not and I understand that there is a requirement to purchase insurance if I decide to drive. If I decide not to drive a car, then I do NOT purchase auto insurance, period! obamacare does not give anyone a choice. (unless you’re in obama’s inner circle and have been exempted!) The only requirement is that one be born, which means every child now born in America is born into debt! I also never said anything about an employer controlling an employees compensation. If an employer decides to not offer contraception in his compensation package in the first place, then how can that be considered a benefit to be controlled by the employer? According to your logic (ditto on the loosely) an employee should have access to the company aircraft even if it isn’t a part of his benefit package. As with most liberal ideas, it just makes no sense.

Hope you find yourself needing a blood transfusion long after you’ve worked for a particular company, not anticipating you would ever need that, and then find out you’re not covered because your employer is a Jehovah’s Witness. As for women choosing to have sex or not, what are the men going to do when the responsibility for protection is totally theirs because the women are limited in these areas? And if the company’s jet is listed as part of the worker’s compensation, then he has a legitimate gripe. It’s amazing that you don’t mind having your boss telling you what’s acceptable for you and your family and your personal medical choices. Why don’t you just go shopping at Hobby Lobby and support some slave/child labor and mandated abortions in China, you hypocrite.

You’re the hypocrite and you need to re-read my previous post as you’re reading comprehension skills are lacking as well. First of all, before I sign up for ANY contract, whether it be insurance, a work order or a cell phone plan, I read the ENTIRE contract so I know exactly what I am getting, ahead of time, and what my responsibilities are. If I don’t like it, then I don’t sign up for it. If you’re too stupid to not do that (and it sounds like you just might be) then that’s on you. Secondly, no one is limiting women’s access to contraceptives. All women still have access to 100% of available contraceptives and birth control devices, they just have to pay for it themselves if it is not covered under their insurance plan. If I need to fly to Denver and the company plane is NOT part of my benefit package, then I go out and buy an airline ticket. If a company car is not part of my benefit package, then I go out and buy a car. If a company doesn’t furnish me a uniform, then I go out and buy my own work clothes. I realize these ideas don’t support your views of a “Liberal Utopia”, but I live in the real world, not some fantasy land. As for mandated abortions, if the government can force companies to provide free contraceptives to women, whether they want to or not, the next logical step is for the government to force women to take them, whether they want to or not. For their own good, of course!
