  •  What about religious non profit companies (0+ / 0-)

    that aren't required to provide contraception?  Are their employees any different?

    I imagine they would rather be allowed to pay the compensation in the form of money instead of benefits. It's fine with them if the employee uses their own money to buy birth control. Though I'm sure they'd say they're going to hell.  

    When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead. It is difficult only for the others. It is the same when you are stupid.

    •  They Should Be Covered (0+ / 0-)

      It was my understanding that religious organization that provided insurance had to provide insurance that covered contraception, they just didn't have to pay for that coverage--the insurance company was supposed to pick up the tab.

      In any case, I think that the employee should have the right to decide whether or not to use it. The employer shouldn't be able to exclude it. First of all, it's compensation, so it belongs to the employee. Second, if the court rules in favor of these companies then they are denying the religious rights of the employees. I don't see how they avoid that consequence.
