What is the Powder Room?
What is the Powder Room?

So the Court was all "We're only considering four kinds of contraception in this case" throughout its decision. But they've clarified - all contraception is up for grabs, and Hobby Lobby and co. are completely exempt from having to provide insurance which covers any form of contraception.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday confirmed that its decision a day earlier extending religious rights to closely held corporations applies broadly to the contraceptive coverage requirement in the new health care law, not just the handful of methods the justices considered in their ruling.

The justices did not comment in leaving in place lower court rulings in favor of businesses that object to covering all 20 methods of government-approved contraception. […]

The justices also ordered lower courts that ruled in favor of the Obama administration to reconsider those decisions in light of Monday's 5-4 decision.


That's right, ladies. It's not just Plan B and IUDs, but contraception broadly. Because fetuses are people, corporations are people, but women?
