Judge: Hobby Lobby Must Offer the Morning After Pill

20 Nov


A judge has decreed that Hobby Lobby must provide the morning after pill as a part of its employee insurance plan. In this article provided by abcnews.go,com it is stated that Hobby Lobby is not a religious organization, so it must provide the morning after pill to it’s employees. The owners are religious and are fighting the new health care law. Where do you think the line should be drawn? Should employers have the right to pick and choose what insurance should be covered?

Fabulous contributor Karalee posed a valuable question about celebrity and privacy in the wake of the shameful breach of the Duchess of Cambridge’s privacy while on vacation with her husband.  You know what happened; no need to rehash it here.

There are few who can understand what it must be like having the entire world know who you are and want to follow your every step.  Kate’s late mother-in-law understood, and she discovered, toward the end of her life, that since the media were going to hound her every movement, she would switch up the roles in a sense and use that crushing scrutiny to her advantage.  And in doing so, Diana, Princess of Wales, was able to bring worldwide attention to the scourge of landmines and their victims, to the plight of AIDS victims, and other causes that she cared deeply about.

Huffington Post columnist Keli Goff has a similar idea for Kate.  Yes, it was an unforgivable invasion of a private time, but turn the tables.  As Goff hypothesizes, Kate Middleton’s boobs could save the world, if only she would let them.

An excellent read.

The newest scandal is photos of Kate Middleton topless which have been leaked to the world. An Italy magazine posted the photographs for the sole purpose to provide content for their gossip publication. I feel sorry for Middleton who was sunbathing privately in a secluded house. I understand that the duchess is royalty and placed under a microscope but as a woman I think it is unacceptable to expose her body to the world. Where is the privacy?
