Yet I imagine this will won’t satisfy them. Good for the administration for having a plan on this though.

The move extends an accommodation that already exists for non-profit organizations, which are allowed to refuse to cover for birth control. In short, the religious owners can pass the cost on to the insurer so that they’re no longer complicit in what they view as sin.

Actuarially speaking there is no cost to pass on. All forms of birth control are at least cost effective, and most are cost saving. Insurance companies want to provide coverage for birth control, the only reason individual insurers allow client employers to set terms is so as not to lose the business of clinically fucktarded religious zealots and become targeted for a boycott by fundamentalist christians.

I’m sure the Magisterium will find this acceptable.

I have a feeling Hobby Lobby won’t like this solely because of who is offering it to them.

re: #4 sauceruney

I have the feeling they also won’t like it because they will lose that bit of control over the women who work for them. They want women to have no birth control options.

Isn’t this the plan that the other cultists are intentionally fucking with? Because it doesn’t matter if they’re paying for it or not, sluts women aren’t allowed to have sex without being punished.

This is to simple a concept for the economically minded Whacko Conservatives to grasp.

The difference is really tiny but important legally for the governments defense of this new version.

In the same announcement, HHS also unveiled an interim rule tweaking the nonprofit accommodation, in an effort to put an end to a separate lawsuit against it. Instead of informing the insurer or third-party administrator directly, the new rule says, an objecting employer will have to notify the government, which will inform the insurer.

The existing rule requires objecting employers to directly inform their insurer, at which point the insurer must pay for it. Some entities, like Wheaton College, sued and said that also violates their religious belief because it amounts to a “permission slip” for contraception. The theory is that under the new rule, it’ll be the government that triggers the provision of birth control, not the employer.
