Hobby Lobby is right

 

The credibility of the press as a purveyor of reliable, accurate information is compromised by the practice of referring to abortifacients (i.e. drugs and/or devices that induce abortions of living human infants in utero) as contraceptives.

In common parlance, established through long use, the term “birth control” has become generally accepted as meaning prevention of conception (i.e. the fertilization of an egg) by any of several generally accepted means. Abortifacients are not contraceptives, they are birth preventers.

This purpose is accomplished through lethal means visited upon infants living and growing in utero. And it is this immoral and lethal purpose that the owners of the Hobby Lobby corporation chose not to facilitate or advance.
