Religious freedom also includes freedom from religion and if a woman works for an organization she should not be subjected to the owner’s religious beliefs; economically it isn’t fair, especially in this job market. If the law of the land requires that birth control be covered, then it should be covered. I understand that the Roberts Court ruled in favor of religious exceptions, but still I think that it was an erroneous interpretation of the constitution and that sometime in the future it will be challenged and thrown out when the Court pendulum swings back to the left as it will in the future. Birth control is as much an economic issue as it is a women issue, a family issue, a health issue and it should not be a political, judicial or a religious issue for the Catholic Bishops and other religious leaders to decide for women. I think that what is so maddening is that women do not want to be dictated to and that is what it feels like and the hypocrisy surrounding the Republican Party and their demands for smaller government and individual’s right to freedom except when it comes to women and their bodies is enough to make many women want to scream in frustration. Birth control is used for many health problems, birth control is also useful for economic reasons, children are extremely expensive, to be blunt. We have too many unwanted children suffering in our society as we speak, as soon as every child is healthy and nurtured, we can get back to interfering with access to birth control, until then, leave the subject alone.
