Condom Maker Doesn’t Realize Hobby Lobby Covers Condoms

A Boulder condom company is offering its product free to women who work at Hobby Lobby — even though Hobby Lobby’s employee health care plan covers condoms.

Sir Richard’s Condom Co. launched a social media campaign last week connecting the giveaway to the Supreme Court’s recent decision allowing closely held private companies to opt out of providing some birth control methods for religious reasons.

“We believe everyone has the right to enjoy mind-blowing, safe sex,” said the post on Sir Richard’s Facebook and Twitter pages. “So, in honor of World Population Day, we are offering a free box of condoms to any Hobby Lobby employees who want them. Just message us on Facebook with your name and address, and we’ll send you a free box of Sir Richard‘s.”

Hobby Lobby’s employee health coverage includes 16 of the 20 birth control methods mandated under Obamacare, including both female and male condoms, along with birth control pills, diaphragms and spermicides.
