Planned Parenthood reacts to U.S. Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby decision

Posted:
 
Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky is reacting to the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in favor of Hobby Lobby.  CEO Betty Cockrum released the following statement:

“It is unbelievable that in 2014, we are still fighting over access to birth control. Today's U.S. Supreme Court decision means countless women, already struggling to make ends meet, will not have the benefit of the family planning coverage provided to all others under the Affordable Care Act. Employers and politicians should not intrude in matters of such fundamental health care access and decision-making.
 
As always, the doors of Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky health centers are wide open for employees of Hobby Lobby or any other company that chooses to limit access to basic reproductive health care. Our health centers across two states serve nearly 74,000 women and men a year, regardless of their health insurance status, and we are committed to continuing to do so.”
