Re “Justices limit birth control coverage rule”: This is a horrifying decision by the Roberts court. Although the justices limited their decision to some contraceptive services paid by privately held companies who have a religious objection, one can see a bounty of lawsuits brought by other private organizations with different objections based on their religious concerns. Where will it end?
Organizations or individuals could object to an aspect of almost any law as a result of their religious objections. This could lead to requests for exemptions to gun laws, drug laws, medical laws, and laws in many other areas, both liberal and conservative. This ruling will encourage corporations to find ways to opt out of laws they don’t like. Is this what democracy looks like now?
