Leila Abolfazli (Your Views, Oct. 7) said Hobby Lobby is suing the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services because of the mandate to provide birth control at no cost in its insurance plan. Had she bothered to inform herself of the facts, she'd know that Hobby Lobby covers birth control in its plan. Hobby Lobby is suing because of the mandate to cover the morning-after pill and other abortifacients. When these products were first introduced, the abortion industry assured the public that they wouldn't be used for birth control. They were only for emergency situations. Now they're telling us these products are birth control.
Hobby Lobby has no problem with providing coverage for legitimate birth control products. Its only problem is with the federal government requiring it to provide a chemical abortion.
