LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Contraception contradiction in Obamacare

Story Topics
Question of the Day

Is it still considered bad form to talk politics during a social gathering?

I’m confused. The argument of the pro-choice advocates at the Supreme Court last week was that the decision regarding contraception should be between women and their doctors, and dictated not by what an employer is willing to cover under a health care plan, but by what is mandated under Obamacare (“Supreme Court to weigh religious rights of corporations vs. Obamacare’s ‘contraception mandate,’” Web, March 23).

This means the state decides what is required. At the same time, executive-order waivers notwithstanding, participation under Obamacare is not optional. Hence, there is no choice. So isn’t there a contradiction in their logic?
