Trying to raise my kids the best I can

I weigh in on Hobby Lobby

This case is huge to me. Here are four reasons why (in no particular order)...


1. It has already been used to allow companies to deny regular birth control (which are also used for a long list of non-reproductive purposes; for instance to treat endometriosis)

2. Justice Alito says the new ruling doesn't apply to blood transfusions or immunizations.
My response:
In the the words of Justice Ginsburg, "Approving some religious claims while deeming others unworthy of accommodation could be 'perceived as favoring one religion over another,' the very 'risk the [Constitution's] Establishment Clause was designed to preclude... The court, I fear, has ventured into a minefield."

3. I am passionate about the fact that healthcare is a human right. If this pushes us towards universal healthcare, then that's a silver lining.

4. Corporations are not people!!! Between this and the Supreme Court rulings over corporate political donations... there are just no words for the ramifications of this.
