The Hobby Lobby case was about birth control coverage, but to see and hear the anti-choice protesters gathered in front of the Supreme Court steps Monday, you might have thought the Court was reconsidering Roe v. Wade.
For Black women, the decision echoes a history of employers imposing their religious beliefs on our reproductive freedom.
The Hobby Lobby case is not some odd outlier regarding “religious freedom.” It’s just one of the many ways the anti-choice movement is trying to chip away at women’s access to contraception and instill the idea in the public’s mind that contraception is controversial.
The results of the 2013 Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System, which were released on Friday, are somewhat discouraging. On almost every measure of safer sexual behavior, progress has either stagnated or, in cases like condom use, reversed.
The unanimous ruling is the latest in the line of religious nonprofit challenges to the birth control benefit in the Affordable Care Act.
After winning a settlement that opened the door for thousands of women to initiate malpractice lawsuits against Dalkon Shield, the IUD that caused my sterilization, I naively thought we had seen the end of sterilization atrocities. Unfortunately, that is not so, at least in California.
Arkansas is the latest state to see a direct attack on Roe v. Wade as fetal “personhood” advocates ramp up attacks on reproductive autonomy.
The 49th anniversary of Griswold v. Connecticut shows how little progress we’ve made in the fight for reproductive autonomy.
The Supreme Court’s historic Griswold v. Connecticut decision may have legalized contraception use between married couples, but with the Hobby Lobby case, the Roberts Court is poised to take us one giant step backward.
The bill also seeks to ban coverage of some forms of birth control, which anti-choice lawmakers incorrectly argue are abortifacients.
