Abortion and birth control are legal in this country, and as such they fall under our legal definition of health care. Mr. Hahn and others are welcome to try to change that law, but they only get to make health care choices for themselves, not their employees. Imagine my telling an employee that they can't see a doctor because I'm a Christian Scientist, or that they have to circumcise their infant son because I'm Jewish. With all due respect to the high-flown rhetoric, this is hogwash. I am forced to "violate my deeply held-beliefs" to pay for all kinds of things I don't approve of: corporate bailouts, subsidies for fossil fuel extraction, foreign military adventures. Picking and choosing what you will pay for, whether with taxes or employer mandates, is not called "democracy". It's called "anarchy" and if you want to see what it looks like in the endgame I recommend a visit to Somalia or some other failed state.

Sorry, Snug. Employment is contractual, not an inalienable right.

Huh? You mean you can sign an employment contract with someone that obligates them to work at any rate of pay, any schedule, any conditions that they will agree to? Of course not. These things are regulated by municipal, state, and federal law. Also known as "employer mandates".
