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.
