This is HUGE! For the 1st time ever, the supreme court will take on the issue of transgender rights in a monumental case involving a school board in Virginia that wants to prevent a transgender teen from using the boys’ bathroom at his high school. And although the case won’t be heard until next year, this COULD be a huge step for the entire LGBTQIA community.
The Supreme Court made a huge landmark decision today, reaffirming the right to choose for women all over America. Thank the Lord! Here’s why.
When the Supreme Court ruled this morning in a 5-3 decision to toss out highly demanding legal restrictions on abortion clinics in Texas, it saved a woman’s constitutional right to choose. That’s because when Texas enacted laws that required all abortion clinics to meet the same structural standards as hospitals, and insisted that all abortion doctors get “admitting privileges” at a local hospital – they virtually ensured that almost all the state’s clinics would close.
The Supreme Court shockingly sent the controversial ‘contraceptive mandate’ cases back to the lower federal appeals courts. Women who work for religious non-profits now risk losing birth control coverage. Click through to learn why this happened!
Supreme Court justices were struggling to find a compromise on the cases filed religious non-profit groups challenging the federal law made contraceptives free to their female employees. The justices unanimously sent the cases back to lower federal appeals courts on May 16, attempting to find a way to make both the religious non-profits happy, and still get women working for them birth control coverage. It was a disappointed day in the Supreme Court!
Would you be angry if your employer refused to allow your health insurance to cover the cost of your birth control, because it was against the boss’ religious beliefs? The Supreme Court is considering this issue right now.
When Congress passed the Affordable Care Act, it guaranteed by law that all female employees would have the cost of their birth control covered by insurance. Fantastic, right? After all, insurance companies routinely reimburse men for the cost of the men’s “sex” drug, Viagra, as well as for Rogaine, which helps them grow hair on their bald heads. If men can get reimbursed to buy a drug that gives them erections for sex, then surely a woman should be able to be reimbursed for the birth control pill or IUD (intrauterine device) so she can make family planning decisions.
Wow — this is huge. The Supreme Court allowed ten Texas abortion clinics to remain open until the court decides whether to hear the clinics’ appeal. Their decision could lead to the biggest abortion case in nearly 25 years!
The court’s big decision to refuse to enforce restrictions that would force 10 abortion clinics to close came on June 29. The vote was 5 to 4, and the order will stand until the court decides whether to hear the clinics’ appeal of the lower court ruling — find out more!
The Supreme Court ruled that same-sex couples have a Constitutional right to get married in any state in the country! President Barack Obama joined in the crowds celebrating this decision, giving a supportive speech where he said that today, ‘America should be proud.’
June 26 will go down as a historic day for marriage equality! The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that states can no longer deny marriage licenses to same-sex couples, meaning that same-sex marriage is the law of the land! President Barack Obama showed his support for the decision and same-sex couples everywhere in a powerful speech, calling the ruling “gratifying” and a “victory.”
Today is a day for history! The Supreme Court issued a ruling supporting same-sex marriage on June 26. In a vote of 5-4, the Court decided that states must issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples and recognize same-sex marriages from out of state!
Remember today, because it’s when the Supreme Court decided that same-sex marriage is legal under the U.S. Constitution! In a landmark 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court ruled that same-sex couples can get married throughout America!
The Supreme Court handed President Barack Obama a victory on June 25! In a decision of 6-3, the court upheld Obamacare and ruled that people in states that don’t have health insurance marketplaces are still eligible for Federal subsidies!
Score one for Obamacare supporters! The Supreme Court issued a ruling on President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act. The nation’s highest court decided that citizens who didn’t sign up for medical coverage through state-run marketplaces can still receive subsidies! That means the insurance for more than 6 million affected Americans is safe and sound!
The Supreme Court just made a historic decision. It ruled that women can be denied a necessary health service — contraception, which is normally paid for by their company health insurance. To put this in perspective, men as an entire sex have NEVER been denied a medical necessity!
Do you believe that the cost of birth control should be covered by your company health insurance, just like other medications? If so, you’re going to be disappointed and possibly angry that the Supreme Court just ruled in a 5-4 decision — with all of the female justices dissenting — that some corporations don’t have to pay for your birth control coverage, if their owners have religious objections.
