How to Change the Conservative Justices’ Opinion on Contraception, Women, and Abortion!

Standard

The clue to how to change conservative justice(s) opinion on abortion, contraception, and women’s rights lies in their vote on a recent decision by the court. That case was: Riley v. California in which the court ruled unanimously that police needed warrants to search the cellphones of people they arrest.

I, along with many others, attribute this apparent contradiction on limitation on police power to the fact that all of the Supreme Court justices, including the conservative five, have and use cell phones. Their aids use cell phones and therefore, they understand the need for privacy.

Based upon that peek into how they think and rule, I make the following suggestion.

We need to get these old white men hooked up with some really hot young chicks of child bearing age. They should also be professional women; no, not that kind of profession. I mean women who work in business or finance or industry who are single mothers trying to support a family and need their reproductive rights protected. Or, they could be unemployed single mothers not wanting anymore children. Or, they could be women who are trying to survive with their family on minimum wage and cannot afford another child or health insurance.

Perhaps if they were as familiar with the plight of women, who are not the wives of Supreme Court Justices, as they are with cell phones, they would think differently when they rule that a company can discriminate against a woman on religious grounds.

Of Sincere Pumpkins and HOBBYLOBBY

Standard

SCOTUS has ruled that to be able to deny coverage under the ACA, the privately owned company must hold a “sincere” belief.

If a closely held company, such as HobbyLobby, sells products which are produced in countries that allow, if not support,abortion; can HobbyLobby keep its sincere status?

If a closely held company, such as HobbyLobby, uses providers of any kind who provide insurance which covers birth control are they sincere in their held beliefs?

If a closely held company, such as HobbyLobby, sells its products to businesses who provide insurance to their employees which covers birth control, are they really sincere in their religious beliefs?

If a closely held company, such as HobbyLobby, sells to individuals who have insurance that covers birth control, or uses contraceptives, are they really sincere in their religious beliefs?

If they are selective about whom they discriminate against because of their religious beliefs, are they “sincere” enough to be exempted from the Affordable Care Act.

We know that HobbyLobby, at the least, puchases a lot of their merchandise from China.  The government of China supports birth control and abortion.  Could any company who sincerely is against any form of abortion, in good faith, engage in commerce with China or any other company which allows abortion or contraception?

CHECK OUT THE INVENTORY THE NEXT TIME YOU ARE IN A HOBBYLOBBY.  SEE IF THERE IS ANY MERCHANDISE FROM A COUNTRY WHICH ADVOCATE ABORTION OR CONTRACEPTION.

Are they only “sincere” in their religious beliefs if they inprove their bottom line?  If that is the case, are they hypocrites?
