By the end of June, the Supreme Court will hand down its decision in Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. v. Sebelius, determining whether owners of for-profit, secular corporations can impose their religious beliefs on employees. The owners of Hobby Lobby, an arts and crafts chain with an annual revenue of more than $3 billion, are refusing to include no-cost contraception in employee health care plans, as required by the Affordable Care Act, because they object to certain forms of birth control. If the Court rules for Hobby Lobby, the consequences will be serious and broad.
In addition to this case, there are a variety of other rulings this term in which the Court has done significant harm to the progressive cause. We invite you to join us for a discussion of the Court’s legacy this year—including and beyond the Hobby Lobby v. Sebelius ruling.
