Despite Hobby Lobby continuing to provide 16 different forms of contraception to employees without a copay, the National Organization for Women is still coming up with ways to dishonestly exploit the recent Supreme Court decision on exemptions for closely held corporations.
NOW's latest move is demanding President Obama sign an executive order enforcing the contraception mandate in Obamacare for federal contractors.
"There is one silver lining to the Supreme Court's brazenly anti-woman decision in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby: women and men around the country are quickly turning their anger into action," NOW President Terry O'Neill said in an email to supporters. "We're asking President Obama to issue an executive order ensuring that all federal contractors who provide a group insurance plan comply with the contraceptive mandate in the Affordable Care Act. We want the president to make crystal clear that the U.S. government will not do business with those who discriminate against women. Make no mistake -- withholding basic health care like birth control from women is gender bigotry."
Hobby Lobby providing 16 different forms of contraception to employees is "gender bigotry?" Hardly. This is just another example of how NOW and the left defines women by the pills they take and how they exploit women by lying to them about access to contraception.
The Hobby Lobby decision in no way withholds "basic health care like birth control from women." Period. End of story. It's unfortunate NOW habitually uses the heavy hand of government to bully those with whom they disagree.
