Should Employer Insurance Cover Birth Control? Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Hobby Lobby
In one of the most anticipated decisions this year, the Supreme Court announced Monday morning that companies cannot be forced to provide insurance coverage for contraception that violates the owner’s religious beliefs. The high court ruled 5-4 in favor of Hobby Lobby, the most famous plaintiff to seek exemption from providing birth control on grounds that it's against the company's religion.

Tweets Against the Decision
FACT: The four types of contraceptives singled out in #HobbyLobby case do not cause abortion, they prevent it.
In other words, #misogyny is acceptable if it's a sincerely-held religious belief. But don't try to take away men's health care!
Tweets in Favor of the Decision
The Supreme Court ruled. It's. The. Law. Period. #HobbyLobby
Thankful for the Hobby Lobby decision. You don't check your religious liberty at the door when you open a business.
