Signed > Thank you so much for signing the petition to reverse the Supreme Court's birth control ruling. To really have an impact, we need even more people to speak out so Senators see the outrage concerning the Court's decision -- and we need to do it FAST. Will you ask your friends and family to sign the petition, too?
& Thank you Dandelion

Noted & signed. TY, Dandelion! Because my granddaughters should not have to re-fight a struggle for gender equality that was supposedly settled in the 1970's. Basic women's rights are being stripped away by SCOTUS & the (G)reedy (O)bstructionist (P)lutocrats who adhere to male domination on every social front. The War on Women rages & the American women of this century must once again stand firm especially in the right to control of their own bodies & reproductive function. MYOB, Boss man, if you cut off my reproductive rights, I will cut off yours! That simple! Even every mysogynist knuckle dragging caveman should be able to understand it! Female libido is awesome (which is what they envy most)!

Signed. Sorry, your religious beliefs do not turn you into a doctor.

If a religious person doesn't approve of birth control, then don't use it. You don't get to decide your employee's medical needs or to "punish" them, by covering one form of birth control, but not the one they need.

 

Dandelion G. (387)

Indeed. This is what Religious Freedom was suppose to be about, your right to your religion but my right not to share in your particular religious beliefs. Is how I feel about abortion, you don't want one, don't have one. I know both religious people and non religious people who personally wouldn't opt for an abortion, yet, they still want to have other women that right if they choose to.
 

Ashley heffner (457)

I know there are lots of sane religious people. But there is a vocal minority that makes me want to scream.

Don't "believe" in gay marriage, then marry someone of the opposite gender or don't get married at all.

Don't "believe" in evolution (Good luck succeeding in the modern world, but okayyyy). But don't try to stop children from being taught science. You can teach them your version on your own time or enroll them in a private religious school.

Don't believe in climate change, this is where I draw the line. Your forcing your pollution onto the rest of it. I compare this to smoking around non-smokers. The non-smoker gets to inhale your smoke.

Don't like certain kinds of birth control, okay, don't use them. You are free to get pregnant or knock up as many people who are willing. Though, it is irresponsible given how overpopulated the world is. But hey, in the U.S. we can't stop you from having ten kids if you have your heart set on it.

It appears that many commenters are upset with the religious among us,who try and shove their beliefs down our throats, and rightly so, I might add.
Remember, that's what MANY Christians do, not all, but many. Of course, a good number of Christians are truly good persons and are happy with their faith.

When people strive to get others to 'come around' to their way of thinking, one can't help wondering if they are true believers. If you know in your heart that you are right, you have no need to convince anyone else. That is what is called _control_.

Some of the happiest people I know, on both sides of the fence, are those who have their convictions, but don't attempt to force others to their way of thinking. .

The idea of birth control should be the decision of the person who is taking the birth control and her doctor only. Who she is working for should have nothing to do with the decision. The business should be happy that she is taking birth control, there would be no need for maternity leave or having a sick child that she has to stay home with. It doesn't make sense!

Gladly signed with comment. I think impeachment would be a fine thing to consider for this SCOTUS. The decisions made by the conservative 5 are, for the most part, fulfilling a political agenda, not merely interpreting the Constitution. What a sad turn of conscience for this country. Thanks, Dandelion. It was great seeing you in Maine on your trip. Wear the dress in great health and humor!

Is it not better to have birth control, than an abortion or an unwanted child??
 

Dandelion G. (387)
Thursday July 17, 2014, 7:07 am
One should think that Ronnie. But you see their main reasoning behind this is you ONLY have sex to procreate. If you can't afford to procreate, then you shouldn't be having sex.

In their minds the minorities and poor whites shouldn't procreate because they can't afford those children. Keep the minorities downtrodden, deny opportunities to them, if for whatever reason you are white and haven't gotten the golden ring then you must be defective somehow, so you too do not deserve to procreate.

This will keep the masses all pure and squeaky clean for the "wealthy" to all be around. All those dirty nasty or "poor" areas will disappear, the wealthy will keep a certain amount of people beneath them to do the service industry type work, you know care for their children, mow their lawns, repair broken stuff....those will be the servants to them and I'm sure by then it will be very ingrained that those people will be choice of force only be having the exact number that is needed in children to serve the wealthy.

This mindset is not new, it is just rearing it's ugly head again more forcefully. This was done upon the blacks in the past, deny them places to live, job opportunities, food, and they'll simply stop having children and go away. But we know that doesn't happen nor should that be a way a Country or a people should operate. Just read in the historical accounts how it was, one doesn't have to go back too far. There was a reason the MLK's rose up.

Now they fear those coming from south of the border, their brown skin, and different ways. It's all about fear and fear of change. But the original inhabitants of North America were of various skin tones, some were dark some lighter, the Indians. Now that the "white" invasion has taken root, how dare people of darker skin want to come here, many of the newer immigrants are of "Indian" backgrounds.

So they "fear" what might happen as unfounded as it may be, they fear it. This is what that Quiver Movement is all about too, that woman on TV with her what is it, 19 or 20 children. They don't broadcast that too loudly, but they are part of that movement. Have lots of "white" babies to start to turn the tide of the white being overpopulated by another race.

Fear is a motivator of many of the policies that have been placed into law and using the tool of religion to do it.

If Hobby Lobby has an issue with contraception and related issues, they should include that in their pre-employment interviews. It saddens me greatly how this happened!
