The U.S. Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision is not a victory for individual freedom (“Fix religious freedom law,” guest editorial, July 15).

The ruling places the religious preferences of the few — business owners — above the freedom of the many — employees — over access to contraceptive coverage under the Affordable Care Act.
