Tyler (KETK) — Today the White House house says the Supreme Court ruling on contraception coverage jeopardizes women's health.
The National Journal reports the news this way-- The Supreme Court on Monday weakened Obamacare's controversial contraception mandate, ruling 5-4 that some employers cannot be forced to cover birth control as part of their health insurance plans. The majority opinion, written by conservative Justice Samuel Alito, said such a mandate infringes on religious freedom, and therefore can be waived by certain business owners.
But in a blistering, 35-page dissent, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, joined by Justice Sonia Sotomayor, lambasted the majority opinion-delivered by five male justices-as "a decision of startling breadth" that would allow corporations to "opt out of any law … they judge incompatible with their sincerely held religious beliefs."
The reason they have their robes in a wad: This chips away at their beloved Obamacare.
Isn't it funny how those who say stay out of the bedroom now want to go into our bedrooms? The ruling is for religious freedom. What do they have against religious freedom?
CNN reported the Obama administration will work with Congress to ensure women affected by Monday's Supreme Court ruling will continue to have health care coverage for contraceptives.
Since when has the president wanted to work with Congress?
That's my point of view, what's yours?
