Hobby Lobby Supreme Court Ruling

June 30, 2014

Don’t be fooled by arguments that the recent Supreme Court (SCOTUS) Hobby Lobby decision is a victory for individual freedom.  The SCOTUS ruling places the religious preferences of the few (owners) above the rights of the many (employees), who are now deprived of contraceptive coverage under the Affordable Care Act.   The SCOTUS decision was narrowly crafted with regard to specific (contraceptive) coverage and only applies to "closely held" corporations (those with 5 or fewer individual owners), but it certainly adds to the pro-corporate personhood case law and demonstrates why those of us who value personal freedom should support grassroots activism via Move to Amend, which continues to organize for an amendment to abolish corporate personhood and put a stop to this pro-corporate judicial activism.

Corporations are artificial inventions and do not have freedoms. Any arguments to the contrary are nothing but wolves in sheep's clothing attempts to bamboozle the public and lead us further down the road toward a state of oligarchy and diminishment of our personal freedoms.  Get Involved with a Local Affiliate!
