Hobby Lobby and contraception: How conservative evangelicals went from not caring about abortion and birth control to being obsessed with them. Photo by Brendan Smialowski/AFP/Getty Images In its challenge to the “contraception mandate” of the Affordable Care Act, Hobby Lobby claims that certain forms of birth control—Plan B, “ella,” and IUDs—induce abortion and therefore go against the owners’ religious beliefs.

As an Australian I have grown up with universal health care and see it as a necessity in a western democracy.

However I'm pretty sure it works along the lines of, if you earn over a certain amount you have to pay for private health insurance, if you earn under said amount you receive health care that is completely subsidised by the governement (dubbed medicare). Furthermore if you earn over the said amount and still don't have private health insurance, I'm pretty sure the government will still pay for your medical bills however you have to pay a small tax (which is nothing in relation to the actual hospital bills but rather similar to the costs of private health insurance).. but like i said, if your an Australian please correct me if I'm wrong (which I'm guessing i am). The reason I ask is because 2 years ago my brother was diagnosed with a brain tumour and we didn't have to pay a cent, it was completely paid for by the government.
