Lobby Vs Burwell Case Study

Great Essays
Abstract
The topic of my essay is why I did not agree with the Supreme Court’s decision of the Hobby Lobby vs. Burwell case. I will begin with a brief summary of the case, including the ruling, then I will proceed to share my reasons why I did not agree. Those reasons being first, I do not agree that any corporation should be treated the same as a single person, second, Hobby Lobby argued that it was against their religion to provide four contraceptives that they believed to be abortifacients, the same four contraceptives that were labeled as not abortifacients by the FDA, and lastly, for-profit organizations should not be able to decide how their employee’s use their provided healthcare. These are just a few reasons that caught my eye while

Many young people employed by Hobby Lobby use contraceptives for medical reasons. I also don’t believe those reasons or what they choose to do with the contraceptives should not matter to the employers. For a corporation to use religious burden as a reason to cut their insurance coverage and not receive a major tax penalty is immoral. As Justice Ginsburg stated, this case may open the doors to make it easier for other for-profit companies to do so, equaling many employees without proper healthcare. Also, for the case to proceed with an incorrect statement, being that Mirena IUD, the Paragard IUD, Plan-B, and Ella where all abortifacients. This is statement is false; as the FDA has labeled each of these are not abortifacients. Hobby Lobby should not have been able to declare a statement as a fact, because they believe something to be true and that it burdens their religion, when the statement in fact can be disproved by science.

    These religions go as far as to say that it would be immoral not to vaccinate as it is disrespectful to life (Grabenstein). According to a blog through WordPress, “When someone makes a claim that their religion is opposed to vaccines... it is just a smokescreen for a personal refusal of vaccinations” (A Review of Religion). This statement elaborates on how those who deny vaccination typically have a personal argument, not a religious. This goes back to the point that claiming vaccination exemption through religious beliefs should generally be denied and discredited. However, there is one lone religion that is notoriously against…
