America's biggest abortion business may have found its true calling: a hotline for birth control. Hello, I'm Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington. Planned Parenthood isn't letting companies like Hobby Lobby off the hook -- literally. The abortion giant is hoping to put religious liberty on hold with a new hotline that keeps tabs on companies' health care policies. By using the number, women can "report" their pro-life employers for not covering drugs that can prevent or end a pregnancy. Planned Parenthood will follow up by pointing people to free pills. Which shouldn't be hard, a new report points out. In the last year, the rate of women who don't have to pay for these drugs jumped from 14% to 56%! If that isn't access to "reproductive care," I don't know what is! Still, Planned Parenthood insists on keeping a running list of what employers have religious objections -- no doubt to intimidate or harass them. Regardless of their motivation, I don't think anyone will mistake their hotline for a lifeline.
