Supreme Court Justice Ruth Vader Ginsburg, who clearly saw and seemingly approved of a link between eugenics and Roe. v. Wade, doesn’t see a clear link between the owners of Hobby Lobby’s Christianity and their unwillingness to pay for contraceptives. She literally said their objection is “too attenuated to rank as substantial.”
Her belief that the correlation between the requirement of Christian-owned and operated businesses to provide contraception drugs to employees who wanted to prevent pregnancy, and in other cases, cause the death of an unborn child was weak.
“The requirement carries no command that Hobby Lobby or Conestoga purchase or provide the contraceptives they find objectionable,” she wrote. “Instead, it calls on the companies covered by the requirement to direct money into undifferentiated funds that finance a wide variety of benefits under comprehensive health plans.”
