Sen. Kay Hagen, D-N.C., is quoted in The Sun News on July 19 as saying “individual’s health care decisions are between her and her doctor” as justification for her party’s proposed legislation (which failed) to basically overturn the Hobby Lobby Supreme Court decision.
There is nothing in that decision that takes away a woman and her doctor’s decision-making privileges. It does clarify that others, who do not morally agree with her decision, should not be forced to pay for it.
Violations of our freedoms of Religion and Conscience Rights were at risk in this case and thankfully were upheld by the Court.
It is also interesting that for many years one of the liberal mantras has been “keep the government out of the bedroom.” Suddenly they want government through mandated insurance for all forms of contraception (including abortifacients) inside the bedroom.
One would think the millions of dollars of federal funding for Planned Parenthood (largest supplier of abortions) would be adequate for them.
