Your Eyes and Ears at the Nation's Capital

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.
