Hillary Clinton has condemned the Supreme Court ruling that allows employers to refuse to cover birth control for women under the Obamacare mandate.
The potential Democratic presidential frontrunner calls the decision “deeply disturbing,” and says she hopes it sets of a “real outcry” across the nation, The Washington Post reports
She claimed that the 5-4 ruling in the Burwell vs. Hobby Lobby case permits certain employers to “impose their religious beliefs on their employees.”
"This is a really bad, slippery slope," Clinton said during an appearance at the Aspen Ideas Festival.
“It’s very troubling that a sales clerk at Hobby Lobby who needs contraception, which is pretty expensive, is not going to get that service through her employer’s health-care plan because her employer doesn't think she should be using contraception.”
And according to The Wall Street Journal
, she also said, “It’s the first time that our court has said that a closely held corporation has the rights of a person when it comes to religious freedom. I find it deeply disturbing that we are going in that direction.”
The former secretary of state, who was promoting her new book, "Hard Choices" in Colorado, added, "We're always going to argue about abortion.
"It’s a hard choice and it’s controversial, and that’s why I'm pro-choice, because I want people to make their own choices.”
