This is in response to Tyler Benjamin's letter of July 19, "Paying for abortion is constitutional?" responding to a letter by Georgia Carrasco of July 9.

The Hobby Lobby ruling is an attack on women's basic health care. The constitutional right is derived from an individual's right to health care, whether the insurance company is paying for birth control, Viagra or heart medication. Also, please be aware that a fertilized egg is not a pregnancy, as anyone involved with in vitro can tell you. The pills Hobby Lobby objects to merely prevent the fertilized egg from implanting itself in the woman's uterus.
