Supreme Court Rule Against Obama – The Hobby Lobby Conclusion

http://edition.cnn.com/2014/06/30/politics/scotus-obamacare-contraception/

As a follow-up to a post on this site last March, this conclusion to the Hobby Lobby Case (June 2014) is well worth a view.

It contains a brief (but enough) overview of the arguments on both sides regarding the issue of contraception as an aspect of Obama’s Affordable Healthcare. It includes brief links to reports by CNN that also help contextualise the courts decision to recognise that private companies (in this case the evangelical Christians who own Hobby Lobby) have the right not to be forced to sell products that go against their creed. In addition to obviously being useful for the Supreme Court, this link is also good for examples into Pressure Groups/Lobbyists and their role in the decision making process – in this case the courts. Try it!
