What if the employers gave the cost of the insurance cover to the employee and the employee was then obliged to pay for his health insurance himself. The employee is not then paying for something with which they disagree.
Actually, the situation is exactly the same. It's just fiddling the books to stop some people whinging about this and get them whinging about something else.
Maybe the employers would like an inventory of everything on which the employee spends his or her money so they can be sure they're not helping support moral issues with which they disagree.
