5 Elected Officials' Ridiculous Reactions To Hobby Lobby
Since the Supreme Court’s disastrous ruling in the case of Burwell v. Hobby Lobby, out of touch politicians across the country are showing women why the issue of access to birth control is so important. To help remind these politicians that women are watching, we’ve compiled the most out-of-touch, offensive, and outrageous reactions to the Hobby Lobby decision, which allows bosses to make important and personal medical decisions on behalf of their female employees. Let’s take a look at how these candidates and elected officials responded to questions about the Hobby Lobby ruling:
1. Scott Brown: Hid In A Bathroom
2. Cory Gardner: Opposed Birth Control Before He Was For It
3. Chris Christie: Just Doesn’t Care
4. Scott Walker: Man on the Street
5. Thom Tillis: Hiding Under a Motorcycle Helmet
While the last one was kind of a joke, the truth is that the Hobby Lobby decision could have very serious and damaging impacts on access to contraceptive care for women across the country.
Planned Parenthood Action Fund is working to ensure everyone knows who is standing up for women and who is not.
Many women are unsure how the ruling will impact them, and if you have any questions about your contraceptive coverage, you can text "birth control" to 69866.
