Don't Forget: Hobby Lobby Invested In Numerous Abortion And Contraception Products While Claiming...

Hobby Lobby Invested In Numerous Abortion And Contraception Products While Claiming Religious Objection

In what just may be the most stunning example of hypocrisy in my lifetime, Mother Jones has uncovered numerous investments on the part of Hobby Lobby’s retirement fund in a wide variety of companies producing abortion and contraception related products.

Hobby Lobby is currently seeking relief from certain contraception benefit requirements of Obamacare in a United States Supreme Court case that promises to be a landmark decision on the rights of corporations and the extension of personal religious protections to corporate entities. In the case of the Hobby Lobby corporation, the company is closely held by the Green family who purport to have strong religious objections to certain types of contraceptive devices and are suing to protect those religious rights.

Remarkably, the contraceptive devices and products that so offend the religious beliefs of this family are manufactured by the very companies in which Hobby Lobby holds a substantial stake via their employee 401(k) plan.

As I suspect many readers will find this as hard to believe and digest as I, the data can be confirmed by reviewing the company’s 2012 Annual Report of Employee Benefit Plan as filed with the Department of Labor. http://www.documentcloud.org/documents/1099360-savings-incentive-and-profit-sharing-plan-for.html

1. Misrepresenting the facts to the U.S. government is not just hypocrisy it is illegal

Hobby Lobby needs to be investigated for misrepresenting the facts to a government agency. Obama should enforce the law, the same law the the republicans tried to remove Bill Clinton from office with.
