Letter: Politicians should secure our borders, not supply our contraceptives

Hobby Lobby’s position is fair

It appears that Harry Reid and the Democrat senators are more worried about your sex life than they are about our national security.

Patty Murray and Mark Udall are introducing a bill (on the fast track) to overturn the Supreme Court decision on the Hobby Lobby case. It’s bad enough that they think they know better, (Big Brother at work here), than the Supreme Court justices, but they are not telling the American people the whole truth about this decision. Of course, that seems to be par for the course of the Democrat senators.

The Supreme Court did not take away any right of any woman for any kind of birth control or the abortion pills. The decision was that a closely held corporation with religious objections to the contraceptives does not have to provide it to its employees. These same employees can get the contraceptives anywhere they please, but oh my, they would have to take personal responsibility and pay for it themselves.

In Hobby Lobby’s case, they provide free of charge 16 of the 20 named contraceptives, but object to only the four that could cause abortion. Maybe the Democrats should worry more about securing our border, and the diseases and the gang members coming across our borders illegally, rather than your sex life.
