    If my employer does a 401(K) match, can they refuse to allow me to invest in companies that violate their religious beliefs?

    I dont think employers should be involved in insurance at all. I am all for contributions to a HSAs.

    Again, this is my Monday-Friday. I live and breathe health insurance for 37.5 hours a week. I'm well aware on what this means.

    Well I don't think that the unicorns should ever have flown away and abandoned us.

    But they did.

    And since employers ARE currently involved in insurance, unfortunately this is a discussion which we have to have. And within that discussion, our employers don't have a right to discriminate against me as a woman (or smokers, or AA people, or overweight people) because of their uneducated religious views when it comes to my uterus.

    You cannot have an HSA without participating in a high deductible health plan although it does not have to be an employer sponsored insurance. You can be a self pay insured and participate in an HSA.

    Ya all those things are still different than telling someone that they must pay for something that is the equivalent of murder. All of those things are to help people get well, not to end a life. It would be more like saying the employer had to pay for a shot used to euthanize someone. And those things just give more reasons why the government shouldn't be mandating that employers must pay for healthcare.

    Ummm at some point someone has to process the claim and pay the bill. It's not like they can do that blindfolded. It may be that only the people whose job it is to pay that sees it, but someone does. Not that it matters. If those pills are on the list of things that are approved to be covered they will be paid for, if they are not then they won't, just like any other claim.

    Except that it isn't the equivalent to murder. Some people just like to say that, because it makes them feel superior and all judgey proud and like God or something. But these plans still pay for birth control, which is the exxxxact same thing. So it makes no sense, no sense at all.

    Honestly its just funny you comparing this to ending an adult life. Its so...........out there.

    But really I don't care if that is what you believe, its cool. Its just wrong and illegal, luckily.


    And I don't get your last sentence. Aren't you mad that the government is offering an alternative TO employers paying for healthcare? And aren't you all "no employer is gong to offer healthcare anymore because of Obamacare" doomsday scenario a few debates ago? I'm getting confused now. Am I mixing up you and someone else?

    What is equivalent to murder? I hope you're not referring to the morning after pill. I still cannot grasp why anyone still thinks it's an abortion pill. Abortion pills are not sold OTC. Morning-after pills do not end a pregnancy that has implanted.

    It is if you believe that life begins at conception not implantation.
