The High Court ruled that businesses could deny women certain birth control if it is against their religious beliefs.

 

U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley is cosponsoring legislation that would change that.

 

"And the recent Hobby Lobby decision by the Supreme Court.  The case shows the High Court favors religious values of bosses or religious beliefs of workers and ironically it utilizes a law that was supposed to protect the religious rights of workers.  I strongly feel that politicians and bosses should stay out of the healthcare relationship between a woman and her doctor."

 

The legislation would prohibit companies from discriminating against female employees in any health coverage that is guaranteed under federal law.

 

Democratic Representatives in the House are introducing a similar bill as well.
