The truth of emergency contraception


Dr. Dana Stone
“There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.”

Consistent religious beliefs

Letters to the Editor

Nancy Roche
Isn’t it ironic that Hobby Lobby is using religious beliefs as an excuse to not participate in the health care mandate, but it doesn’t hesitate to import all that garbage they sell us from China, where women are still strongly encouraged to have abortions?

Balanced journalism

Letters to the Editor

Lawrence Curtis
Congratulations for publishing Dr. Dana Stone’s timely and splendidly written “The truth of emergency contraception” (Commentary, Feb. 20, Oklahoma Gazette). Her rationale was validly bolstered by well-supported and cited facts. Her commentary was an effective, appropriate and much-needed contribution to a volatile and poorly understood subject — more accurately, a widely misunderstood and high-profile controversy of the day.

Crossing Obamacare

Hobby Lobby's legal battle against the Affordable Care Act has made it a darling of evangelical Christians nationwide.


Peter Wright
For supporters of Hobby Lobby, the fluorescent bulbs that light store aisles have perhaps become a beacon of righteousness. The Oklahoma City-based chain stepped into the political fray late last year with a controversial lawsuit against the Affordable Care Act (ACA), a case that has garnered praise from some of the most prominent evangelical figures in the country.

Questioning Hobby Lobby

Letters to the Editor

Dennis Weigand
In all the back and forth about Hobby Lobby and the Affordable Care Act (News, Peter Wright, ”Crossing Obamacare,” May 1, Oklahoma Gazette), there is one important question that I have not seen addressed: Is employment at Hobby Lobby conditional on agreement with the religious views of the owners?

Pondering religious freedom

Letters to the Editor

K.A. Straughn
Concerning Hobby Lobby’s refusal to pay for emergency birth control under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Dennis Weigand (Letters to the Editor, “Questioning Hobby Lobby, May 8, Oklahoma Gazette) writes, “Is employment at Hobby Lobby conditional on agreement with the religious views of the owners? If it is not, then [Hobby Lobby’s] claim that their religious freedom would be violated by the ACA is nothing but a hollow pretense to religious superiority, taking the position that Hobby Lobby’s religious freedom is more important than the religious freedom of their employees.”
