Planned Parenthood: The birth control case that continues what Hobby Lobby Started

Example of why the SCOTUS is so important.

http://plannedparenthoodaction.org/blog/zubik-v-burwell-the-birth-control-case-continues-what-hobby-lobby-started

Does all this sound familiar? Thatís because the devastating Hobby Lobby decision let bosses of some for-profit companies deny birth control coverage to their employees. The Zubik case could go a step further. Hereís how:

In response to the Hobby Lobby ruling, the Obama administration created a rule so that employees at companies like Hobby Lobby could still get no-copay birth control directly from insurance companies ó just as the administration previously did for religiously affiliated nonprofits. Zubik v. Burwell could COMPLETELY strike down this accommodation, leaving women whose bosses oppose women's health without any access to birth control coverage.

3. Why not just make it OTC, and be done with it.

 

Simple solution, and easier access for people with and without insurance.
