    To me, the Hobby Lobby decision is discrimination based on sex. The religion of the family who owns Hobby Lobby is not being discriminated against. No one has harmed them or their religion in any way. The family and the five Supreme Court justices who sided with them have harmed women, and have used their ungodly/anti-women interpretation of religion as their cudgel!

      it applies only to us, not to any men.  And all the legislation affecting women's bodies alone, restricting access as well as criminalizing/impeding health protections, are only for us, and it will all be ruled unconstitutional.   Don't ask me when.

      Part of the problem created is that the family who had the huge cash to bring the case probably doesn't know how the four items it listed in fact work, so as to be able to determine whether any of them is in fact an abortifacient. All that matters however is that those four are believed by the plaintiffs to be, and may therefore be deleted from coverage offered to employees whether they do or not, since it is the belief not the fact which matters.

      Do recall that with the failure of the Equal Rights Amendment to go through, gender bias is not the same level of Constitutionally prohibited discrimination as some other classes.
