    The Supreme Court justice took on the majority opinion in a biting dissent.

    By Dustin Volz


    June 30, 2014


    The Supreme Court on Monday weakened Obamacare's controversial contraception mandate, ruling 5-4 that some employers cannot be forced to cover birth control as part of their health insurance plans. The majority opinion, written by conservative Justice Samuel Alito, said such a mandate infringes on religious freedom, and therefore can be waived by certain business owners.
    But in a blistering, 35-page dissent, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, joined by Justice Sonia Sotomayor, lambasted the majority opinion—delivered by five male justices—as "a decision of startling breadth" that would allow corporations to "opt out of any law … they judge incompatible with their sincerely held religious beliefs."

    The majority view "demands accommodation of a for-profit corporation's religious beliefs no matter the impact that accommodation may have on third parties who do not share the corporation owners' religious faith—in these cases, thousands of women employed by Hobby Lobby and Conestoga or dependents of persons those corporations employ," wrote Ginsburg, a stalwart member of the Court's liberal wing.



    She continued: "Persuaded that Congress enacted the (Religious Freedom Restoration Act) to serve a far less radical purpose, and mindful of the havoc the Court's judgment can introduce, I dissent."

    Had Sotomayor joined them it would have been six male justices.

    I agree. Sandra Fluke may have to buy all her own birth control products. Oh, the outrage!

    The "havoc" this decision "threatens" is much needed, an all-out counter-attack on Libs & Progs decades-long assault on the First Amendment's free exercise clause.
