And while I am not religious at all, I respect their rights not to be forced to do something which goes against their core beliefs.

Once again, not sure why this is a big deal...
If an employer (or an insurance company) can save a buck or two, they will and the people will lose out, and it will be the poorer people that lose the most
I guess we'll just have to see about that. I truly don't believe that will be the case at all. Contrary to what some believe, most companies are run by humans that actually care about the other humans that work there. I don't think millions of business owners are going to suddenly find Jesus in order to save a few pennies (if it really saves anything at all).
