Roberts Court War on Women

court 1

Posted on June 30, 2014 by Ruth O’Brien

It was a double slam-dunk of a day for Justice Samuel Alito.

Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores is not fun, and no hobby for women, children, or anyone who is now dependent on the “good” faith of their employer’s belief structure — at least for the right to decide what to do with their minds and bodies.  In a 5-4 decision, Alito undermines President Barack Obama’s signature law by allowing employers to refuse to pay for health insurance that violates their belief system.

This was the other shoe dropping!  My, my what creative health plans we will see.  More on my imaginings later.
