Are people who protest the Hobby Lobby decision certifiably insane? The decision sent down by the Supreme Court on June 30 was a very limited one that does not match its reputation at all.

  1. The decision still allowed insurance payments for 20 different forms of contraception, but did allow the company to avoid buying contraception that also kills the newly conceived child. In reality, the case had nothing to do with whether or not any woman is ever denied access to contraception.
  2. Why should health insurance cover anything that is fairly cheap and thus easily affordable by even low-income families? And some forms of contraception are free. The original purpose of insurance to provide for unexpected health emergencies and catastrophic expenses, not to cover cheap or free health acquisitions.
  3. Why should the business that provides insurance be involved with contraception at all? Even the most determined feminist protesters are demanding that their bosses get out of their bedrooms – see picture above. I heartedly agree. But, do they not understand that demanding they pay for ones’ sex life just invites them into the bedroom?
  4. The most popular forms of contraception harms the woman’s body by changing her healthy fertility to an artificial sterility. It is a health issue because it harms women’s health despite all the slogans from the professional feminists. Consider these facts from Jenn Giroux.
  • Since 1975 there has been a 400% increase in in situ breast cancer among pre-menopausal women under 50 years old. This mirrors the increased use of birth control over these same years. In situ is a medical term which means “at the location.” (4)
  • A Mayo Clinic study confirms that any young girl or woman who is on hormonal birth control for 4 years prior to their first full term pregnancy increases their breast cancer risk by 52%. (5)
  • Women who use hormonal birth control for more than 5 years are four times more likely to develop cervical cancer. (6)
  • The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), a research arm of the World Health Organization, classifies all forms of hormonal contraception as a Group 1 carcinogen. This group of cancer causing agents also includes cigarettes and asbestos. (7) Why is it that the FDA can require cigarette manufacturers to place warning labels and real life photos of corpses on cigarette packages to warn consumers of the health dangers yet they, in turn, take an equally harmful substance (hormonal birth control) and force companies to give it away free to young girls without parental consent and woman of all ages?
  • For high school boys and men to take steroid drugs, it is a crime. Whereas girls and women taking steroid drugs (i.e. hormonal birth control) are now treated as if they are taking a sacred, life preserving vitamin that women cannot live without. (8)
  • In October 2010 the NY Times carried an article about Hormone Replacement Therapy drugs. It quoted the America Medical Association (AMA) as warning women that these post-menopausal drugs which were originally marketed as keeping a women “young and sexy” were discovered instead to be more likely to cause advanced and deadly breast cancer.(9) It stopped short of making one other startling revelation: The only difference between hormone replacement therapy drugs which cause deadly breast cancer and the hormonal birth control drugs (now mandated by the Obama administration) is that the birth control drugs are six times the dosage—and are the very same drug!
