    Luckily, if they can't afford the insurance they can just pay the fine. I'd rather be sick at home than well in jail, but that's just me.

    It seems to me that the premise of this thread is that only white people read it so it's a good place to show our street cred in having 'other' friends. I'll choose not to play.

    16 or so types of birth control are covered under Hobby Lobby's employee insurance plan. Maybe you'll have to refuse to shop there for other reasons?
