When the Court Creates a new Justice.
By GFDoctor on July 01, 2014
When women are told what to do with in their personal lives.
when women are forbidden basic choices
when women are shown once again that they are second class citizens
It is time to make changes.
When 1 in 4 female college students has the opportunity to be raped
When 1 in 4 children under the age of 18 are the victims of incest
When 1 in 5 adult women will experience rape
Rape results in about 32,000 pregnancies each year
The Hobby Lobby decision brings to the forefront a conflict that has been simmering in American society for decades.
Is a corporation truly a person?
What part of a corporation can bear a child or show grief for a woman who has been injured?
What sensitivity to the cares of another are shown by corporate decisions?
Each woman in the USA deserves to care for herself.
Together with her physician, she will make the best choices for herself.
No corporate person should be able to make that choice for her.
Especially when the company makes financial investment choices that contradict their closely held beliefs by investing in contraceptive manufacturers, like Hobby Lobby does.
Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp.(co-defendant) together employ 32,000 people.
Other closely held corporations likely to discontinue contraceptive care:
• Chick-fil A. The nation's second largest fast food chicken restaurant chain was founded in 1946 by Truett Cathy, whose Southern Baptist beliefs have influenced operations. It's the only fast food restaurant closed on Sundays and, in 2012, the franchise faced public scrutiny following comments from the company COO opposing same-sex marriage.
• CKE Restaurants. The company franchises quick-service restaurants under the Carl's Jr., Hardee's, Green Burrito and Red Burrito names. CKE CEO Andrew Puzder is known for being a devout Catholic who opposes abortion.
• SweetFrog. The Virginia-based frozen yogurt chain is also known for its foundation in Christian principles. F.R.O.G. stands for "Fully Rely on God." It was founded in 2009 by South Korean immigrant Derek Cha, who attributes the business' success to "faith, prayer, family and friends."
