The U.S. Supreme Court is out of touch with America. In its recent 5-4 decision in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby, the Court’s majority held that corporations have religious freedom rights, and those rights can be used to trample the rights of others – in this case, women who want to access affordable health care.
When the Supreme Court ruled that companies and bosses can claim personal religious beliefs to interfere with women's access to basic health care like contraception, it set a dangerous precedent that could have serious consequences. As Justice Ginsburg said in her dissent, "The court, I fear, has ventured into a minefield.”
A bill introduced in Congress last week would fix that. The Protect Women’s Health from Corporate Interference Act, also known as the Not My Boss’ Business Act, would make it illegal for companies to use religious beliefs to deny their employees specific health care services, including birth control.
