The Supreme Court’s recent Hobby Lobby decision has again stirred up pro-abortion critics, like Sandra Fluke and others. They have been quick to frame the Court’s 5-4 ruling as a battle against access to birth control, rather than about abortion-inducing pills and religious liberties.
Hobby Lobby President Steve Green explained in an exclusive Heritage Foundation interview in March, that the issue is not “a war on women” or seeking to obstruct access to birth control in their company’s health care benefits:
We do not have a problem with contraceptives. … There are 20 that are required [under Obamacare] and 16 of them we provide. So that is not the problem. But there are four that can terminate life. And those are the four we cannot provide.
This court decision recognized the religious beliefs of the founders and owners of a “closely-held corporation.” It ruled they have the right to practice their pro-life, pro-family and pro-religious-liberty viewpoints. For this, we all should praise God!
