Rallying For Women’s Rights
Today, as the Supreme Court heard arguments in the case brought by Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood against the Affordable Care Act, hundreds of rights’ activists from women’s, LGBT, faith, youth and other groups rallied outside in the unseasonably cold weather and snow to show their support for the ACA’s contraception health coverage rule.
A bad Hobby Lobby decision would empower corporate leadership to make determinations about their employees’ health care decisions, allowing business owners’ religious views about family planning to burden decisions that employees are entitled to make for themselves. Starting very early this morning defenders, of the Affordable Care Act stood at the steps of the Supreme Court to declare that women’s health care is not their boss’s business.
Take a look below at the scene today at the Supreme Court.
