69. It is just slight of hand.

We need to remember that the people really running the Republican party don't really give a fuck about abortion. In fact they really don't want a lot of Medicaid babies, preemies, fetal alcohol syndrome, and otherwise deathly sick or addicted babies jamming up the neonatal intensive care and jacking up their state deficits. They would look like the reptillian slime they are if they shut off the oxygen and IVs on 18 oz preemies and hydrocephalics that would otherwise have been aborted. But they need these dimbulbed single issue voters and they needed a win to keep them juiced on the Republican brand. So this little victory does the trick and doesn't do much of anything else except fuck over the women of Hobby Lobby who will have to find other ways to get birth control. Of course it is wrong. It is also cynical as hell on their part because they know the Supremes will never outlaw abortion for the reason mentioned above. But they have to look like they will or the jig is up. The republican state legislatures are doing all the heavy lifting against abortions and SCOTUS has done nothing but tease them along, knowing they can shut it all down if it gets out of control and expensive.

Meanwhile the Republican controllers will make sure that their Lindseys, Ashleys and Penelopes have the best contraception money can buy and quick trips to Canada or even a write off trip to France should she forget her pill. This also is an issue that will frustrate and exhaust our activists so that is a bonus for them.
