The Twisted Logic Decrying The Hobby Lobby Decision

Now that the initial hysteria over the Hobby Lobby decision has died down a bit, Clarice Feldman offers her take on the matter, including something too many on either side of the debate have ignored: the supposed 'law' Hobby Lobby was fighting wasn't one passed by Congress (no where in ObamaCare does it mention coverage for birth control ), but an administrative 'law' handed down by a committee created by then HHS head Kathleen Sebelius.

In any event, like most of the breezy, ill-considered language in this 2000-page law, great discretion was given to the unelected secretary of HHS and Sebelius quickly acted to make sure the pro-abortion crowd, increasingly unpopular with voters, had the upper hand. She appointed a 15-member committee, eleven of whom  “demonstrate a more than casual commitment to the furthering of the abortion lobby” and unsurprisingly, the group issued a report  that “not only favored contraception, but indicated that surgical abortion coverage would have been a viable candidate, had federal law not stood in  their way.”

It was this committee’s report -- not a Congressional decision -- which HHS used in mandating that employers provide coverage for 20 kinds of birth control for women, including 4 which are abortifacients, devices which lead to the destruction of fertilized eggs.

Feldman goes on to explain the hypocrisy of the 'outrage' at the Supreme Court's decision, asking why nary a word was heard about the “204 outfits favored by Democrats granted waivers by the president from ObamaCare, which means their employees do not have the right to employer provided birth control.” These outfits included “upscale restaurants, nightclubs...hotels, labor union chapters, large corporations, financial firms, and local governments.” But not a peep was heard from the Sandra Flukes and the other semi-hysterics who have so lambasted the Hobby Lobby decision. The only explanation can be that the other exceptions didn't fit the narrative, and therefore were ignored despite those waivers having an effect magnitudes greater than the Hobby Lobby decision.

As the saying goes, Read The Whole Thing.
