Barbara Boxer: Hobby Lobby's Supreme Court Position 'Anti-Woman'
On the day that the Supreme Court heard oral arguments regarding the HHS mandate, Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) argued that Hobby Lobby’s position against abortion-inducing drugs is “anti-woman.” Boxer claimed that Hobby Lobby has never complained that Viagra is available for men under their health insurance coverage for employees.
As Right Scoop notes, though the MSNBC host observed to Boxer that Hobby Lobby’s objection has to do with issues about life, Boxer persisted, “Excuse me, I have never heard them put in any type of moral objection – remember this is a moral objection – to men getting Viagra. But they have a moral objection to women getting certain types of birth control.”
“So, I view this,” Boxer concluded, “as very much an anti-woman position to take.”
