What you’re saying is that women should choose to never have sex. Cool. Because no woman has ever been forced to have sex against her will. That would be rape, and we know that never happens.
Okay, so women aren’t having sex, and women aren’t getting raped. And yet…boner pills are still covered by insurance. So dudes need boner pills to survive to have sex…with other dudes? FINALLY WE KNOW WHO IS PROMOTING THE GAY AGENDA! THE RELIGIOUS RIGHT! (PS. I am totally 100% pro-gay agenda. I’m thrilled that all y’all have come around.)
I bring up chemo, diabetes, &etc because a Supreme Court Ruling establishes something called “precedent.” You probably don’t know what that is, but I’ll explain in terms you might understand. For example, you sent a dumb anonymous ask, followed up by another one. You’re setting a precedent that my anonymous asks will be dumb, which is why I’m shutting them off after this. NO MORE COOL GREY CIRCLEFACE, BRO.
By establishing that a CORPORATION can prohibit certain types of health care based on RELIGION, it establishes a PRECEDENT that other CORPORATIONS can use.
Regarding survival, women’s access to birth control goes hand in hand with women’s progress. You won’t read these, but here you go:

I could never be Justice Ginsburg, because after constantly defending basic rights I just want to respond “because fuck you, that’s why.”
Hobby Lobby is a corporation. Corporations get certain benefits that people don’t: tax breaks, protection from criminal charges being filed, etc.
If Hobby Lobby would like to be a PERSON WITH RELIGIOUS BELIEFS, then Hobby Lobby should not get the protection of a corporation.
If Hobby Lobby had the courage of their religious convictions, they would not:
- Purchase products from China, which has an egregious policy of forced abortions;
- invest in companies that make the morning after pill, among other medications, that Hobby Lobby wants to forbid their employees from accessing.
If you are a human in the United States, it should not be up to your boss to decide what medicine is appropriate for you to take. It should be up to your doctor. Yes, and insurance company could deny you, but YOUR BOSS SHOULD NOT HAVE ANY DECISIONS WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR HEALTH CARE.
Hobby Lobby is totes cool with vasectomies and erectile dysfunction drugs.
One of the points people up is that Hobby Lobby doesn’t want to cover the Morning After Pill because it’s abortion. Except that the Morning After Pill ISN’T ABORTION. The Morning After Pill delays or inhibits ovulation. IT PREVENTS PREGNANCY. This is science. But maybe you think gravity is a myth, too.
Christian Scientists and Jehovah’s Witnesses* traditionally do not believe in medicine. So I imagine you ‘re okay with a business run by someone who practices these faiths to not cover your mom’s chemo, or your diabetes medication, or a blood transfusion for your child. (*Edited to add: Jehovah’s Witnesses believe in medicine, just not blood transfusions. Thanks to annelangston for the clarification.)
Point six: (bonus round!)
I appreciate that you are so confident of your convictions that you are willing to put your name on your…oh wait. You’re anonymous.
#DrHobbyLobby prescribes taking up cross-stitch. May I recommend this one?
