For her, it doesn’t matter if their beliefs are sincere. The only thing that matters is whether or not those beliefs are valid.

The mistake is to think that Hobby lobby , as well as the rest of us ,are not already paying for it, since in the insurance game ALL of the healthy pay for ALL of the sick. Their plans may not provide those services, but that does not mean that their payments are not helping supply them. In the final analysis, what does this really mean? After all, can my own Jehovah's Witness employers one deny me treatments that include blood transfusions on their sincerely held beliefs? Slippery slope if you ask me.
