Hobby Lobby, the plaintiff in the Supreme Court case fighting the contraceptive mandate in Obamacare, is heavily invested in contraceptives.
The company’s 401(k) plan for employees had $73 million invested companies that make the emergency contraception pills, intrauterine devices and drugs used for abortions, according to documents filed with the Department of Labor in 2012 reviewed by Mother Jones.
The companies invested in by multiple mutual funds in Hobby Lobby’s retirement plan include Teva Pharmaceutical Industries, Pfizer and Bayer. Some of the funds also invested in Aetna and Humana, insurance companies that provide plans covering contraception.
So they’re willing to put the First Amendment’s separation of church and state in jeopardy because Jesus, but when it comes to making money for the very employees they’re dictating religious practices to, they’re perfectly happy to invest in companies that make the things they say they’re against.
