SCOTUS Orders Hobby Lobby Outcome To Apply To All ACA-Approved Contraceptives

If you thought the Hobby Lobby case only applied to those contraceptives which wingnuts sincerely believe cause abortions, think again. All contraceptive methods are covered by the decision. I'm sure glad Justice Kennedy didn't see this as a broad mandate or anything like that.


The Supreme Court on Tuesday confirmed that its decision a day earlier extending religious rights to closely held corporations applies broadly to the contraceptive coverage requirement in the new health care law, not just the handful of methods the justices considered in their ruling.

The justices did not comment in leaving in place lower court rulings in favor of businesses that object to covering all 20 methods of government-approved contraception.


Tuesday's orders apply to companies owned by Catholics who oppose all contraception. Cases involving Colorado-based Hercules Industries Inc., Illinois-based Korte & Luitjohan Contractors Inc. and Indiana-based Grote Industries Inc. were awaiting action pending resolution of the Hobby Lobby case.

I just have one response for these vile women-hating faux Christians:
