Latest Obamacare delay to deny millions of women their free contraceptives

Thomas Lifson
The Hobby Lobby case establishes the principle that free contraceptives are a basic human right, as the Democratic Party sees it.   The Obama administration and its liberal supporters argue that Hoppy Lobby must comply with the portions of the Obamacare requirements that clearly violate deeply held religious beliefs, and supply contraceptives to its female employees at company expense.

Yet these same groups think it is perfectly OK for the Obama administration to delay implementation of part of the employer mandate, thereby trapping employees in "substandard" health plans, most of which do not include cost-free supplies of contraceptives. By this standard, isn't Obama denying women their rights?
