This is ridiculous ! Obamacare doe sNOOT interfere with anyone's religious freedom . Making contraceptives more easily available will PREVENT many more abortions . There is no such thing as a pill which can "cause and abortion", because an abortion is the surgical removal of a partially formed and VISIBLE fetus. Being opposed to both abortion and contraceptives is absolutely idiotic . People like the Greens are threat to the freedom of NON-CHRISTIANS .

Just because your Mom became a fan doesn't mean everybody wants to prevent children.

"Preventing children?" How about preventing children from growing up in abject poverty , hunger,malnutrition lack of,decent housing, abuse, neglect, lack of health care and job opportunity once they grow up ?
This is why abortions happen . Unless you change the adverse social and economic conditions which drive women to have abortions, you will never be able to prevent abortion .
Trying to stop abortion by making it illegal is like trying to stop a forest fire by pouring gasoline on it .

Robert1824, I've never suggested anything you're going on about. I teased you because you said some thing about "Making contraceptives more easily available".
As you've realized, this had nothing to do with the column. Nor does your banter about hungry kids. Read the column and learn what Hobby Lobby takes issue with.

It would seem some artsy gays should open up a competing business, and outsell the Greens by better quality and cheaper prices. That would make sense to me.
They might be able to employ Sandra Fluck, now that her 15 minutes of fame are over and her useful idiot status for Obama is exhausted.

Robert, by your logic, no poor person should be allowed to have a baby at all. What about the poor in other countries, they are having babies that grow up in far worse poverty than anyone in the U.S. and yet they lead happy lives. You are way past wrong on this one.

Such a commonly repeated piece of pro-abortion propaganda. Sorry, but repeating it doesn't make it become true. Most abortions do not happen because of poverty; they happen because a young girl has had unprotected (or inadequately protected) sex when she's not ready for sex at all.

What on earth are you talking about?

Robert didn't read the article. The Green family are not against contraceptives, just the abortion drugs because the baby is already formed and they kill the baby. That is a religious belief not to mention a scientific fact, and the first amendment says congress shall pass NO LAW respective of religion. They don't have the right to pass a law telling people they must violate their religious beliefs unless those beliefs actively cause harm to another person, sacrifices for example, are not allowed.

I bought a picture frame on Saturday.

It’s just a simple, black, 5-by-7-inch frame with a plain white mat, suitable for the black and white photo my daughter took on Christmas Eve of our dog, Scotty, sitting at the feet of my dad (a supposed dog opponent).

If I’d taken the time to hunt in the storage closet upstairs, I probably could have found a similar frame, or certainly one that would have sufficed for a picture of the dog.

But the point was, I went out to buy the frame. On Saturday. At...
