Supreme Court Backs Hobby Lobby
The U.S. Supreme Court has shown, once again, that it believes that the rights of corporations are more important than the rights of people, more specifically the rights of women. In a 5-4 vote, it has been ruled that employers of privately held for-profit companies cannot be required to provide contraceptives for its employees as it would be a violation against their religious freedom.
Hobby Lobby, a chain of crafts stores, headquartered in Oklahoma City, Okla., and Conestoga Wood Specialties, a manufacturer of wooden cabinets, based in East Earl, Pa., were two of the corporations that challenged the contraceptive coverage requirement.
After the ruling, those who aren’t still living in the Dark Ages, took their concerns and opposition towards the ruling to Twitter where a storm had already broken loose.
