Democrats to Pass Bill Overturning Hobby Lobby Decision

Well that didn’t take long.

Senate Democrats are preparing to bring a bill to the Senate which will effectively overturn the Supreme Court’s ruling in the recently decided Hobby Lobby case. The Supreme Court ruled that a “closely held” business like Hobby Lobby could indeed handle their business suing their religious principles as a guiding force. For Hobby Lobby, that meant the government could not force them to pay for certain kinds of birth control which could be described as abortifacients. (An abortifacient is a birth control drug that works by causing the baby to be aborted.)

The Democrats worked quickly to get this legislation ready.

Congressional Democrats said Tuesday that they had developed legislation to override the Supreme Court decision on contraceptives. The bill would ensure that women have access to coverage for birth control even if they work for businesses that have religious objections.
