Forum Communications Refusing To Cover Birth Control For Employees

Forum Communications Refusing To Cover Birth Control For Employees

Apparently there is an internal food fight going on in Forum Communications Company (the organization that owns the Fargo Forum and the Grand Forks Herald and a bunch of other newspapers and television/radio stations). According to Jim Romenesko, FCC employees are using an internal company bulletin board to complain about a lack of coverage for birth control.

Should You Have To Pay A Tax To Live In Accordinace With Your Conscience?

At the Supreme Court yesterday, left wing justices questioning lawyers representing Hobby Lobby suggested that the company wasn’t really mandated to provide contraception coverage they find immoral. After all, according to Justice Elena Kagan, the company could just drop insurance for all employees and pay a $2,000/employee tax: There’s one penalty that is if the

Contraception Argument Highlights An Upside Down View Of Liberty

Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties today argued their case against Obamacare’s contraception mandate before the Supreme Court, and not surprisingly the three left-wing female members of the SCOTUS pounced wondering why laws intended to protect religious freedom should apply to business owners conducting their business in accordance with their religious beliefs: Justice Sotomayor started

Federal Judge Tells Obama Administration Not To Enforce Obamacare Contraception Mandate

Obama administration Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has finalized Obamacare’s mandate regulations today, and while there is included an “accommodation” for non-profit religious institutions there is no similar accommodation for for-profit organizations. But that doesn’t matter for now, as a federal judge has ordered the Obama administration not to enforce contraception mandate on lawsuit plaintiff Hobby

NSA Collecting Call Data From Millions Of Verizon Customers

Remember when President Obama was against this sort of thing? “This administration…puts forward a false choice between the liberties we cherish and the security we provide,” then-Senator Obama said in 2007. “I will provide our intelligence and law enforcement agencies with the tools they need to take out the terrorists without undermining our Constitution and

Kermit Gosnell Isn't An Aberration Among Abortionists

As I wrote two weeks ago, one of the most horrifying aspects of the trial of Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell isn’t the decapitated babies and grotesque conditions of his facility but rather those who were basically complicit in his crimes because they assisted, or at least didn’t act to stop him. Gosnell was able to

Video: President Obama Says North Dakota Pro-Life Legislation "Turns Back The Clock"

“In North Dakota they just passed a law outlawing your right to choose as early as six weeks even if a woman’s raped,” said President Obama today while addressing abortion industry giant Planned Parenthood. He’s referring to the law, signed by Governor Jack Dalrymple, which outlaws abortions if a heartbeat is detected. “A woman may

Fracking Stops Unwanted Pregnancies

No, you’re not reading the headline wrong, that’s really the conclusion of the Guttmacher Institute: With only one Planned Parenthood facility in the entire state and 75 percent of the population living in counties with no abortion provider, North Dakota’s teen pregnancy measures seem an unlikely cause. With the influx of young men to the

Expanding Medicaid In North Dakota Would Be Short Sighted

Governor Jack Dalrymple has broken ranks with Republican opponents of Obamacare nationally and slipped the expansion of Medicaid, called for in the Obamacare law, into his budget. Dalrymple’s case for the expansion? The federal government is paying for it (at least in the short term) and Dalrymple thinks that’s “no cost” money. Because we, uh,

Video: Debate Over Anti-Abortion Bill Gets Testy In North Dakota Senate

Yesterday SAB had a post up about the anti-abortion bills which passed in the state Senate, but I thought it would be instructive to show you readers some video of the rather testy (by the muted standards of the North Dakota state legislature) debate surrounding the measure. Senator Margaret Sitte (R-Bismarck) (who was herself targeted
