From the page: "While the vast majority of closely held corporations in this country will not impose contraceptive coverage restrictions on their employees, this ruling, at a practical level, will necessitate a new level of caution when searching for a job. It will now be necessary for an employee to ask whether or not contraceptive coverage is offered in their benefits package. In the past, this was simple; if you applied for a job with the arch diocese, you knew, a priori, that contraceptive coverage would not be part of your insurance package. Now the waters will be murkier. And, in this time of slowed economic growth, will employees be forced to choose between employment and contraceptive coverage?
It is currently illegal for an employer to ask a potential employee about their marital status, religion, pregnancy status, or sexual orientation. Will potential employees be allowed to ask about their potential employers’ religious beliefs and family planning coverage? Or will those employees find out after the fact that these essential services are effectively denied them?
Realistically, this will affect not just employees, but their wives and female children as well. Will non-medical uses of contraceptives also be denied? Will women with menorrhagia be denied coverage for a Mirena IUD? Will adolescents with acne be denied coverage for birth control pills? In the final analysis, this supposedly narrow ruling has a potentially enormous reach, and we have only just begun to see how far its limits will be tested."
