Hobby Lobby Decision Step Backward for Women’s Autonomy

June 30, 2014

June 30, 2014 – Today’s Supreme Court’s decision in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby is a step backward for women’s health and reproductive rights, and also for their fundamental autonomy. The majority opinion permits some corporations to express religious beliefs at the expense of their employees’ own religious beliefs, healthcare needs, and individual choices. At the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV), we know just how vital it is for women to maintain control over their own health and reproduction.

“All too often, abusers restrict access to contraception or force unwanted pregnancies as a means to exert power and control over their victims,” said Kim Gandy, President and CEO of NNEDV. “Women, especially victims of domestic violence – not their employers or abusers – should control this important aspect of their lives.”
