Hobby Lobby should let workers decide coverage

Hobby Lobby seems to have a double standard. They had no problems with their previous health insurance policy, which covered the IUD and Plan B.

To turn the Affordable Care Act into a freedom of religion debate while doing business with China, which has the toughest laws on one child per family and forced abortions and birth control, is the height of hypocrisy.

It seems Hobby Lobby is willing to put its deeply held religious beliefs on the shelf to improve their bottom line with less expensive Chinese goods.

If their religious conscience is the real problem, they could give the amount of the insurance premium to their employees on their paychecks to purchase a policy of their own choosing.

If their motives are sincere, their employees could make their own choice while they kept their conscience clear. Then everyone has freedom of choice.
