  •  most insulin these days don't come from pigs (3+ / 0-)

    Modern insulin is human analogs from bacteria with human insulin genes in their DNA.

    Seems to me that a owner of a business who is sole proprietor has an argument that he is paying for insurance that might be against his religion. But if that owner actually owns shares in a corporation, then the corporation cannot have a religious belief. Unlike Romney who said corporations are people, I doubt the Pope  would sanction the merger of two corporations as a marriage or a spinoff as a live birth. So then corporations don't have religious rights.

    If some corporate president who owns 100% of a corporation wanted to make it a sole proprietorship, then he can have a declare first amendment right and then I'd except his desire to banish his female employees from their right of controlling their own bodies. But anything short of that is an outrage.
