Meet the 18 For-Profit Companies Fighting Obamacare’s Contraception Coverage

http://jezebel.com/5982261/meet-the-12-for+profit-companies-against-obamacares-contraception-coverage

~~

Here are the 18 for-profit companies that are challenging Obamacare's contraceptive coverage provision on the basis of their precious religious freedom, yet expect the women who work for them to pay the costs of a creed they don't support.

18 of the 48 lawsuits that have been filed in federal court challenging the contraceptive coverage benefit are led by for-profit companies and entrepreneurs, ranging from Hobby Lobby (Ye Holy Crafts) to Weingartz Supply Company (outdoor power equipment personally blessed by J.C. himself) to a dude who hasn't even hired any employees to oppress yet.

According to the National Women's Law Center, which is tracking the lawsuits, the cases brought by non-profits have been largely dismissed as "not being ripe" because non-profits with religious objections get a one year delay in implementing the benefit; basically, their anti-slut gripes can be worked out later.

But the cases brought by for-profits are moving quickly because most of them are already required to provide their employees with contraceptive coverage benefits, which is awesome for workers but distasteful for bosses who would prefer to limit their employees' access to reproductive health. (Which apparently means they all give excellent maternity/parental benefits? Just checking!)

4. I have only heard of two of these...

Hobby Lobby and Freshway Foods. So if anyone knows of what these other companies might produce that most of us would know about, let us know. I can easily avoid the known, but don't want to inadvertently buy products for any of these companies.

6. Tyndale House published those ridiculous Left Behind books

Which I'll admit I read, but I was smoking a lot of weed back then.
