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.

Associated Press: Republicans Block "Free Contraception"

Earlier today the US Senate voted down a motion to invoke cloture on legislation seeking to overturn a Supreme Court ruling which held that closely-held companies cannot be forced, under Obamacare, to pay for contraception benefits for their employees if they find the contraception to be immoral and a violation of their religious conscience (for

Matt Evans: Hobby Lobby Proves It, People Don't Understand Rights

Watching the reactions of people to this week’s Hobby Lobby supreme court ruling has refocused my attention on something we already knew: People Do Not Understand Rights. Head on over to Wikipedia and search for “negative liberties”. Read that and then come back. Here’s the short version: you have the right to not have other

The Supreme Court Is Not Inhibiting A Woman's Access To Contraception

In the wake of this morning’s Supreme Court ruling on Obamacare’s contraception mandate, the narrative coming from the left suggests that a woman’s right to access contraception is under attack. Senator Elizabeth Warren accuses SCOTUS of denying women access to basic care: Can't believe we live in a world where we'd even consider letting big

LegitSlater: We Can Make Gay Marriage Work

As we learned earlier this month, North Dakota will join the ranks of other states who will experience a challenge to our restriction on gay marriage.

Supreme Court Sides With Hobby Lobby, Gives Obama Another Loss

It’s been an inauspicious Supreme Court term for the Obama administration. First SCOTUS overturned Obama’s recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board, pointing out that Congress and not the President decides when Congress is in recess. Now today the Supreme Court has ruled that Hobby Lobby can’t be forced to provide contraception coverage in

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
