Supreme Court ruling hurts women's rights

Five old men on the U.S. Supreme Court issue an appalling birth control decision that will affect the lives of thousands of women. These men live in yesteryear and are not capable of making rational decisions that affect the here-and-now generations of our citizens. All of this is done in the name of religious freedom -- religious freedom for other old men who own corporations that have nothing at all to do with religion. How many other lawsuits will this generate by other "religious" business owners who will contrive absurd reasons to deny coverage based on their so called "religious" beliefs, or more realistically their prejudices?
