Irrational Democrat Senators Respond to Hobby Lobby Decision


Written by David E. Smith

In response to the recent Supreme Court decision in favor of Hobby Lobby,  Illinois U.S. Senator Dick Durbin announced that he will introduce a bill that “requires all corporations using this Supreme Court decision to deny or limit contraception services to disclose this policy to all employed and applicants for employment.” U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) also responded by promising that Democrats “will continue to fight to preserve women’s access to contraceptive coverage and keep bosses out of the examination room.”

What ridiculous reactions!  Conservative people of faith no more want bosses in the examination room as they want government bureaucrats, politicians and other ninnies in the examination room.

And as a matter of fact, women have access to 20 different types of FDA approved, over-the-counter birth control pills that are readily available at local pharmacies.   Sens. Durbin and Reid’s willingness to force family-owned businesses or taxpayers to provide for this non-essential and private health care decision proves how out-of-touch liberal politicians can be when it comes to the role of government.  Most Americans agree, other people should not have to pay for someone else’s birth control.

More importantly, no one in America should be forced to violate their deeply held beliefs in order to keep their jobs or run a business.  We should be free to live and work according to our religious beliefs, not the government’s religion.   Thank God five justice understood that this is a foundational principle on which this country was founded.
