So you are an employee and worse still a woman to boot, then it looks like....

Nothing he said during the argument Tuesday, even when he asked about the rights of employees who dissent from their bosses' religious doctrines, ought to give the federal government comfort that he's a fifth vote to uphold the contraception mandate no matter what burden it places on women.
It is fine for our rights to be trampled upon.

If only we were job creators.

The foreseen split is also interesting

The divisive decision coming down the road will likely be a 5-4 ruling about female reproductive health coverage in which all three of the female justices are on one side and all but one male justice is on the other.
Tsk, tsk LaFeminista how could you even bring gender into this learned debate?

Well since they obviously have a clue about how contraception works and also don't give a damn about women's health in general

If this decision goes as foreseen then all it really says is:

1] The employees faith is of no consequence.

2] It is fine to discriminate against women

No matter how broad or narrow the judgement even if it were to exclude corporations with a wide shareholder base; this would be discriminatory law.

Daniel Fisher of Forbes, who predicts that “courts will soon be a lot busier trying to figure out whether a company is trying to avoid a law or regulation out of sincere religious beliefs or to save a buck
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all corporations are created supreme that they are endowed by their Creator with certain exceptional  Rights, that among these are profit, the bottom line and the pursuit of maximum shareholder dividends.-
Amen

I will keep saying this that the religious exception is a smokescreen this case is to see just how far citizens united can be pushed.

As we have seen in so many Republican Party controlled States targeting women with discriminatory laws is nothing new why would we expect the Supreme Court controlled more by political allegiance than anything else to do differently?

Now that truly is; a sad state of affairs.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
