Liberals across the country are livid over Monday’s Supreme Court’s decision that says Hobby Lobby and other “closely held” corporations with religious objections are not forced to pay for contraception. While a number of liberals called for Hobby Lobby stores to be burned to the ground, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., claimed on Twitter the decision is “a gross violation of workers’ religious rights.”
“Allowing CEOs to limit the medical procedures available to employees is a gross violation of workers’ religious rights,” she tweeted, woefully misrepresenting the entire decision.
“SCOTUS took an outrageous step against women’s rights, setting a dangerous precedent that permits corporations to choose which laws to obey,” she said on Twitter.
Neither statement is close to accurate, as the decision does not speak to “medical procedures.” It simply says that certain companies who have religious objections to contraception cannot be forced by the federal government to pay for it.
