Columnist Jonah Goldberg: "[C]onsider last week's decision by the U.S. Supreme Court to consider two cases stemming from Obamacare: Conestoga Wood Specialties v. Sebelius and Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores. ... What both ... object to is paying for abortifacients -- drugs that terminate a pregnancy rather than prevent one. ... All they are asking is that the people using such drugs pay for them themselves rather than force employers and co-workers to share the cost. ... You may have no moral objection to such things, but millions of people do. By what right are liberals seeking to impose their values on everyone else? Isn't that something they denounce conservatives for? They could have allowed for plans that exclude controversial forms of birth control -- or even uncontroversial ones -- which would have lowered premium costs and expanded health care coverage to more poor people. But Democrats wanted a wedge issue to drum up a new battle in the culture war -- a war in which liberals have always been the aggressors."
