What's the end game on an accommodation for church-run institutions and contraceptives?
The logic of the Catholic church charities, hospitals, and universities is pretty simple and easy to understand: by the government mandating that their employees' health insurance plans cover contraception, the government is mandating that they abet what they see as a sin. But why limit that to the Catholic-run institutions? What about the devout Catholic who owns a car dealership? Why shouldn't he get the exact same accommodation which the Catholic-run hospital may now get?
Do NOT think that an accommodation here would stop with church-run institutions. It would be easier of conctraceptives could be a government-provided service; that would take Church ethics out of it completely.
(And as an aside, remember that many who want to turn over Roe also want to turn over Griswold.)
