Jeopardy! Messes Up Hobby Lobby Answer

October 31st, 2014

Recently, Jeopardy! posed this question:

In 2014 the Supreme Court said that this chainĀ of stores could refuse to pay for employees’ birth control.

The question begs Hobby Lobby. This is not entirely accurate. Of the 20 FDA-approved methods of contraception, Hobby Lobby only objected to four–Plan B, Ella, and two types of IUDs. Hobby Lobby had no problem with the birth control pill. This is a common misconception I clear up whenever I give a talk on Hobby Lobby.



In case you were wondering, here is the list of FDA-approved contraceptives Hobby Lobby covers.



And the products they do object to.
