Companies should have to pay for employees' lifestyle choices

This is in regard to Richard Nix's letter on July 7 about the family owned business that won the right to not pay for birth control for its employees.

Taking the role of such an employee, he wrote, "But since when do they have the right to try to impose their religious beliefs on me, their employee? So now, they get to amend my health-care coverage to try to get me to live my life by their religion, too?"

The truth is one has the right to one's own lifestyle. The falsehood is to expect someone else to pay for it.
