    I agree. We should remove all government influence from charitable organizations. Like telling us we can't talk about Jesus when we feed the homeless, or requiring us to make referrals to abortion clinics when someone comes into a pro life clinic.

    Absolutely. With the majority of adoption services, and all non profit adoption services being faith based we can almost eliminate adoption for same gender couples.

    If I had my way, only the place of worship, the sanctuary, would be exempt from taxation. Everything else should be fair game.

    @hwyangel So is that what a pro-life clinic is, a christian adoption agency? One where your faith and prejudice takes priority over finding loving and stable homes for children? The same way feeding the hungry takes a back seat to your desire to spread the gospel? Have you ever considered doing anything for anyone without the price tag attached? To do good simply because you see the need and feel the burden placed on your heart,to be an example Christ's love and not just a salesperson for it? To make yourself a humble vessel for Christ to work through to reach those he would and not the ones you deem worthy.

    I wonder if some women still think that their reproductive health is their buisness alone, yet want other people to pay for their reproductive health.

    Probably like the men who get their Viagra through their insurance plans while they complain women aren't chaste enough.

    @Yank I think the comparison is direct and apt. There seems to be no question about men having sex-enhancing drugs administered through their insurance. But women getting birth control? Heavens to Betsy! We can't have that. It's hypocrisy, plain and simple.

    @Zazziness not even close. ED is a medical condition where a man's body no longer functions correctly. As such it is a medical illness that is being treated. Your bias is obvious by calling them "sex-enhancing drugs".

    How about letting those of us that do not want to participate in another "forced" government program to opt out!

    Regardless if I am Pro-Choice or Pro-life, I don't want to pay for someone else's birth control.

    I don't want to take part in what someone does in their bedroom any more than I want them in mine.

    Here is a very simple piece of logic, if you can not afford it yourself then do not get it. Worried about getting knocked up if you do not have it then do not have sex, it is that simple. Stop trying to force everyone else to pay for your choices, it strikes me as odd women moan and complain when people go after abortion and claim it is their reproductive right to kill a baby, but somehow it is their right to force others to pay for their reproductive right as if it is no longer their privacy etc. Make up your mind either it is 100% your choice and your privacy or shut up and accept anti-abortion laws and ruling and all that jazz.

    I'm an American citizen who believe's abortion is murder. How arrogant are Democrats to force me and any other American to pay for Abortions through planned parenthood and this pathetic Obamacare.

    I strongly agree and I was totally outraged when I heard about Obamacare forcing my tax dollars to pay for the murdering of innocents. Planned Parenthood as I recalled was caught in covering up for Human Trafficking and I sure as hell did not want my money fund such demonic organization!

    Makes me wish for single payer more and more every day... it was such a waste to push this right wing bastardization of a plan through hoping to get the people who created it to sign off on it.

    Maybe a different approach is needed. In the same way that politicians have morphed certain terms like taxes into revenues; expenditures into investments; we could do the same thing here. Rather than contraception, we can call it "cycle maintenance"; rather than abortion, we can call it "gestation termination". It even sounds nicer, doesn't it? A little attempt at humor, very little, ;o)

    This is a silly compromise to a silly debate started by silly religion. We are accomplishing nothing but pandering to whiners. Why is any religion dictating how we run our country?
    If religious organizations don't want their employees using contraceptives, make them sign a pledge. Or find some other way to deal with this. No one is mandating that anyone use contraceptives.

    Islam DOES have a certain amount of influence even in military operations. Note how Usama bin Ladin was prepared for burial, given graveside prayers, and buried within the prescribed time limits after his execution in Pakistan.

    The whole thing is just more job killing by the Obama administration. He knew that the Catholic hospitals would just shut down before they would offer the contraception. He would be real popular if the country lost all those hospital beds over this issue, and people could not find a hospital to admit them when they really needed one. He could care less if Hobby Lobby or all the other private enterprises shut down and put more people out of work. In his dreams, he thinks the Federal Government can just employ 60 or 80 percent of the workforce. We are headed there fast.

    I also do not want to pay for people who just have sex for pleasure and uses the contraception to prevent pregnancy. If you need sex that much, you need help. No tax dollars of mine ought to pay for "slutty" pleasure.

    Waste of taxpayer money if we don't have business's or religious affiliation pay for it on people who just want to have sex.

    @Denizen_Kate I'm so sick of Obama compromising all the freaking time. He compromises on so much crap it ticks both sides off. Like the old saying goes: when both the Dems and Reps are compromising on something you can be sure that the American people are getting screwed. Obama will either stand up for the progressives who got him into power or they won't show up to vote for him like in 2010.

    I think it's better than nothing. But there is no reason for the government to force a company to pay for this against their religious beliefs.

    It's not an ideal compromise (as if there ever has been one) but it does protect workers from the often-delusional beliefs of their employers.
