I'm a little confused, and I'm not trying to bait anyone so please explain this to me: The letterRead Morepo sted above says that the Humanists of RI are "defending the rights of women to make their own reproductive healthcare decisions". As far as I understand it, Hobby Lobby has taken the position that the company's employees have the right to make any decision they would like that is within the bounds of the law, but that Hobby Lobby, as a private concern, does not want to pay for ones with which it disagrees for religious reasons. Hobby Lobby is not *denying* these employees these rights, but rather is simply not facilitating them. If Hobby Lobby had said "Any employee who uses birth control will be terminated", then I would agree that basic rights are being denied. That's not the case here. Prohibiting the exercise of something is different than not paying for it. Please someone answer concerning why this is an issue.

I am ignorant of the particulars and not being a woman quite removed from the reality of the issue. Read MoreHowever, isn't it a bit like having to take out separate insurance for a particular issue that should be covered by an umbrella policy? Unwanted pregnancy is difficult enough but to say to her she has to find some other solution to terminate adds an unnecessary burden? Like saying you bad and cannot be part of our care system.
