Remember when Mitt Romney explained to all of us that corporations are people, too? Apparently the Supreme Court is in agreement:
The Supreme Court endorsed corporate personhood — holding that business firms have rights to religious freedom under federal law. Not only do corporations have rights, their rights are stronger than yours….Protecting women’s rights, according to the Court, isn’t a good enough reason for the government to force a business corporation, at least a privately held one like chain craft store Hobby Lobby, to include birth control in its insurance contrary to the business owner’s wishes.
In a serious blow to women’s reproductive rights, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby that for-profit employers with religious objections do not have to provide contraception coverage under Obamacare. So not only are corporations people now, but they have religious preferences. We can’t wait until they have the right to marry.
Team Blackness discussed the many levels of this ruling with facts and much yelling, and sprinkled in a conversation on Iggy Azalea to really get our blood pressure boiling.
