Today the Supreme Court ruled that corporations with strongly held religious beliefs would not have to violate conscience by offering birth control and abortifacients.
In this victory for First Amendment rights, we are sure to see those in the pro-choice community decry this ruling as a “stunning” and “devastating” blow to women. However, as is often the case with the Left, they completely ignore how taxpayer funding already supports Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion services provider in the country, and the organization where Sandra Fluke, Julia and a host of other women can go to get free contraception.
That separation of church and state “thing-y” the Left likes to invoke like a mantra? It’s actually to protect people from the government, not the other way around. It was put into place because our country was founded by those who sought to escape they tyranny of their rulers, who established a government-sponsored religion that dictated only one religious entity, and a compulsory one at that.
Further, detractors of today’s landmark decision will certainly fling around the well-worn “war against women” argument. As noted above, there are already free services in place, however, what the Left misses, yet again, is how killing off half of the female population in utero is the ultimate war against women!
SCOTUS got this one right! Today is a true victory for God, faith, and the First Amendment!
