Hobby Lobby says it has found a way to avoid for "several months" being penalized by the federal government for not covering abortion-inducing drugs in its employee health care plans.
Beginning Jan. 1, Hobby Lobby reportedly was facing fines of around $1.3 million per day for defying the Department of Health and Human Services' abortion/contraceptive mandate. Jan. 1 was the date its new employee health care plan was to take effect.
But Peter M. Dobelbower, an attorney and vice president for Hobby Lobby, said in a Jan. 10 statement that that date had been delayed, although he didn't provide specific details....
true, tis a technical question, and technically life after conception being lost is abortion (or miscarriage). however, the industry has fought to say that a woman is not pregnant until implantation (changing definitions to roughly a week after conception), and even then the baby is not alive ... which to me is just avoiding the hard reality. but technically, contra-conception is more than that. funny how little names and labels can make us feel better....like, taking out a fetus, well, doesn't fetus mean "baby" in French or something? those who push back the hardest are those who deep down feel guilty, and to this I say, that forgiveness and mercy is offered through Christ, but repetance is required. this nation just prefers to stay in miry clay, I guess.
"Under the mandate, businesses and even some religious organizations are required to carry employee insurance that covers contraceptives, including emergency contraceptives such as Plan B and ella that can kill an embryo after fertilization and even after implantation. Pro-lifers consider that action a chemical abortion."
"Pro-lifers" alone consider this abortion? What about Baptists, Evangelicals, Catholics, Orthodox and even atheist molecular biologists? Wouldn't they all call this what it is: Abortion?
