Left-leaning Daily Beast columnist and former Clinton administration official Kirsten Powers argued that Hillary Clinton’s reaction to the Hobby Lobby ruling was “way over the top.”
Powers did state that she supports “government mandated contraception,” and “the government paying for it,” but disagreed with Clinton’s comparing the decision to policies in “anti-democratic” societies.
She argued “we do not live in Saudi Arabia or the Congo… to try to turn this into some misogynist plot against women is going a little too far. That’s not what’s going on here. This is a tough case. I went back and forth on it a lot and I can see both sides.”
