Behave Feminists, the world does not need your lies

Annoyed, that is what can best describe my impression of the feminist and liberal reaction to the Supreme Court decision in favor of Hobby Lobby.  They immediately set out to say that Hobby Lobby hates women and then to twist the facts and make it seem like HL is not providing any options when in fact they are already providing 16 out of 20 FDA-approved options.
“It’s very troubling that a salesclerk at Hobby Lobby who needs contraception, which is pretty expensive, is not going to get that service through her employer’s health-care plan because her employer doesn’t think she should be using contraception,” said Hillary Clinton at the Aspen Ideas Festival this week — a canard which earned her “Two Pinocchios” from the Washington Post’s fact checker.

I'm not even angry because this behavior has become so predictable.  Anything that smells like a risk for women to lose their hard earned rights to contraceptives or abortion becomes a gigantic issue in the news and blown completely out of proportion.

The fact is, Hobby Lobby is providing 16 options.  The four they are not providing are due to the abortive nature of these options.  The Supreme Court has ruled that Hobby Lobby is not required to offer these 4 options due to their religious beliefs and they even based this on the Religious Freedom Restoration Act which was signed by President Bill Clinton in 1993.  The last part has me laughing and almost makes up for the annoyance factor.
