President Obama: Close the Hobby Lobby loophole for women

Last Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court chose Hobby Lobby's corporate extremism over the rights of its thousands of female employees. Now, working women across America face the insecurity of knowing their bosses could deny them access to the reproductive care they need.

It's a tragedy -- but it's one with a very simple fix.

When religious non-profit organizations objected to covering birth control, President Obama changed the rules. He required insurance companies to cover contraception for employees of these organizations for free, while the remainder of their health care flowed through their employer as it always had. 

Now, all President Obama has to do is change the rules again -- by making insurance companies cover the costs of contraception for the employees who were hurt by the Hobby Lobby ruling -- and once again all working women will have the reproductive care they deserve.
