Leaders of women’s groups across the nation are denouncing today’s Supreme Court decision on contraceptive coverage.
The court ruled some companies are exempt from the requirement in the new health care law that stated companies are to provide birth control coverage for women. Gov. Phil Bryant released the following statement:
“I’m very pleased the Supreme Court moved to uphold religious freedom today in its opinion in the Hobby Lobby case. Its decision confirms my position that our state did the right thing in enacting a state-level Religious Freedom Restoration Act and protecting religious liberty for Mississippians.”
