Employers must protect staff from immoral acts

OlympiaJuly 9, 2014 

In response to the question posed at the end of the editorial on the Supreme Court’s decision Monday to exempt two companies from the ACA’s contraception mandate: yes, violations of employees’ civil rights should be permanently far behind. What many, who don’t share the same conviction of truth that contraception and abortion are fundamentally wrong and life as God created it right, fail to see is that for us fighters this is not a power struggle.

Those who fight against funding contraception and abortion with their insurance monies are only in the fight to defend the sanctity and dignity of human life. Thusly, those who defend the sanctity and dignity of life will not then cause harm by violation of employees’ civil rights.

Ginsburg had one thing right, it is an individual’s decision to use contraception or abortion, but she fails to see that the ownership of any company is made up of individuals too. It is those individuals that have a right and, more so, an obligation to protect their employees from the moral wrongs of contraception and abortion until the law catches on and protects all human life.

I like to think of it this way: God does not oppose science, so science should not oppose God.
