Hillary Clinton criticizes Supreme Court decision in Hobby Lobby case
Hillary Clinton criticized the Supreme Court for ruling that an employer can refuse to provide women with contraception on religious grounds.
Hillary Clinton said when asked about the court’s 5-4 decision during the Aspen Ideas Festival in Colorado: “Well I obviously disagree.”
“I disagree with the reasoning as well as the conclusion. Just think about this for a minute.”
The former secretary of state noted that the ruling could be broadened out to include other medical procedures that other religions object to.
“So does that mean if you have need for a blood transfusion your insurance doesn’t have to cover it?” she asked.
“So I mean this is a really bad slippery slope.”
Hillary Clinton also guessed that some businesses would lie about religion just to avoid higher costs.
“I think there should be a real outcry against this kind of decision,” she said.
“Many more companies will claim religious beliefs and some will be sincere, but others maybe not. And we’re going to see this one insurable service cut out from many, many women.”
