Supreme Court Watch
Abortion is the greatest human rights injustice of our time. We pass on the following update from Lila Rose, President of Live Action, Weds. March 26, 2014 —
When people learn the truth about the value of life and human dignity, they cringe from such totalitarian impulses as the Obama administration’s HHS abortion mandate.
It will be a while before we get a decision from the Supreme Court regarding the recent oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby. There was a crowd of people gathered on the steps of the High Court who are passionate about their right to live their faith – and their right not to pay for child-killing drugs.
Let’s clear up some confusion: the Hobby Lobby case is not a “contraceptive” matter, even though so many in the mainstream media portray it that way. This is a matter of our government forcing people to pay for abortifacient drugs – chemicals that destroy an innocent human being in her first stages of life.
1. The Hobby Lobby case isn’t about contraception. In fact, Hobby Lobby’s insurance covers over a dozen forms of birth control. It’s the abortifacients – “emergency contraception” and IUDs, which are built to destroy a human embryo in case of conception – that the company opposes.
2. Even so, fertility is not a disease, and contraception is not health care. Contraceptive hormone drugs act with the false understanding that a woman’s fertility – her ability to house, nurture, and nourish new life – is a “dysfunction” that needs “correcting.” This mentality tells women that the way their bodies are supposed to work is wrong, and that they must rely on government, or a pharmaceutical company, or Planned Parenthood, to “fix” them…using a chemical the World Health Organization has labeled a Group I carcinogen.
3. Abortion drugs should not be legal. Just like contraceptives, abortifacients don’t “cure” anything, no matter how much abortion advocates try to dehumanize the innocent pre-born child into some sort of disease. Wouldn’t you expect health insurance plans to cover things that improve a person’s health? Abortifacients don’t do that – instead of healing, they kill. And they’re no picnic for the mothers who use them, either.
