Progress Michigan Blasts SCOTUS Decision on Hobby Lobby Case

Court says CEOs can force religious beliefs onto employees 

MICHIGAN — Progress Michigan blasted the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision today that sided with Hobby Lobby in a case that says the personal beliefs of CEOs trumps federal health care mandates.

“The Supreme Court continues to side with corporations over the well-being of workers across the country, especially women,” said Lonnie Scott, executive director of Progress Michigan. “Religious liberty is not having your boss’s beliefs imposed onto you. The religious beliefs of bosses and CEOs should not interfere with an employee’s ability to access affordable birth control. Women across this country deserve access to affordable birth control and should not be forced to pay more so that CEOs can continue to line their pockets under the guise of religious freedom.”
