A Woman’s Right to Sex

hobby-lobbyThe disastrous 5 – 4 Supreme Court decision, Burwell vs. Hobby Lobby, on June 30, centered on upholding the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 as related to the beliefs of the “sincerely” religious family owners of such for-profit corporations as Hobby Lobby and Conestoga.

Was this ruling really about religious freedom or was the real issue at stake about sex—and women’s right to have sex as freely as men?

In this presentation, you will learn about

  • the SCOTUS ruling
  • Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s scathing dissent
  • FDA-approved forms of contraception
  • the definition of “abortifacients”
  • a proposed re-voting of Senators Patty Murray’s and Mark Udall’s “Not My Boss’s Business” Act

Anne Hoiberg, of the Women’s Museum of San Diego, presents an important discussion of this recent controversial ruling.
