Beware. Contraception is back on the table. More government intrusion. Not from Congress this time. From the Supreme Court.
The case involves Wheaton College. Wheaton College has a lawsuit pending before the Supreme Court. Wheaton does not want to provide insurance for contraception coverage. As with the Little Sisters of the Poor case, they do not want even to sign/self-certify that they are opting out in providing the coverage. They feel doing so makes them complicit in contraceptive activity.
Wheaton will not be heard for some time. Wheaton therefore asked the Court for an injunction allowing them to get off the hook, so to speak. Sign nothing till the Supreme court decides, not be required in any sense in even recognizing contraception. In a 6-3 decision thursday, the six males of the Supreme Court granted the injunction. The three female members dissented.
The gauntlet has been thrown big time!

Sorry, Lew, but I think you have the issue wrong.
Can someone — in a personal or corporate form — be FORCED to pay for something that they find “morally objectionable in part for all”?
Pro-lifers view the abortion / conception / mercy killing thru the same lens. Like the Nazi Death Camps.
As a pro-life pro-choice little L libertarian, I think Gooferment with its “monopoly” on force is the problem.
If pro-life OR pro-choice were “such a great idea”, then no force would be required.
Like carrying an umbrella in the rain so you stay dry. Just don’t ask me to pay for the umbrella.
