Judge: Hobby Lobby must pay for abortifacients

That’s right, elections have consequences. A federal judge ruled that it is in the interest of the state to force a private entity to violate long held religious principals to pay for abortifacients for other people.

A federal judge Monday rejected Hobby Lobby Stores Inc.’s request to block part of the federal health care overhaul that requires the arts and craft supply company to provide insurance coverage for the morning-after and week-after birth control pills.

In a 28-page ruling, U.S. District Judge Joe Heaton denied a request by Hobby Lobby to prevent the government from enforcing portions of the health care law mandating insurance coverage for contraceptives the company’s Christian owners consider objectionable.

The Oklahoma City-based company and a sister company, Mardel Inc., sued the government in September, claiming the mandate violates the owners’ religious beliefs.

Note to Hobby Lobby Employees: Do you like your current health care plan? Too bad because you sure as hell aren’t going to be able to keep it. The left’s insistence that your employer be forced to pay for abortifacients that most of you will never use means that your employer will likely drop coverage completely, pay the fine and toss you into the government exchange.

That reality is brought to you by Barack Obama and the Democratic Party.
