Yes, the Supreme Court denied Hobby Lobby’s request for a stay on contraception coverage, but the company head would rather pay steep fines than comply.
With Wednesday’s rejection of an emergency stay of that federal health care law by Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, Hobby Lobby and sister company Mardel could be subject to fines of up to $1.3 million a day beginning Tuesday.
“They’re not going to comply with the mandate,” said Kyle Duncan, general counsel of The Beckett Fund for Religious Liberty, which is representing the company. “They’re not going to offer coverage for abortion-inducing drugs in the insurance plan.”
As for the potential fines, Duncan said, “We’re just going to have to cross that bridge when we come to it.”
Since contraception isn’t an “abortion-inducing” drug, things should be all cleared up, right?
Not so fast. The company owner and his legal representation apparently don’t know their ass from their elbow, and because of their arrogance and stupidity, and their religious zealotry, women employees will be treated as second class for the immediate future.
