FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Hadassah Disappointed by Supreme Court Hobby Lobby Decision
NEW YORK – Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America, Inc., is deeply disappointed and concerned by the Supreme Court’s ruling in Burwell, Secretary of Health and Human Services v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc.
Preventive care encourages personal health awareness and early detection – rightfully putting women in charge of their own health and wellness. The Supreme Court has not disputed that access to no-cost contraceptive coverage, an essential component of women’s preventive care and overall health, is within the government’s interest. However, it is deeply disappointing and concerning that the Court would allow an employer’s religious beliefs to supersede women’s health and the right of women to make their own health care decisions.
