NARAL PRO-CHOICE COLORADO STATEMENT ON THE SUPREME COURTíS RULING ON THE HOBBY LOBBY CASE ALLOWING BOSSES TO DETERMINE WOMENíS BIRTH CONTROL DECISIONS 

Denver - Karen Middleton, Executive Director of NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado, gave the following statement on the Supreme Courtís ruling on the Hobby Lobby case.

"Todayís Supreme Court decision is devastating for women and their basic right to privacy in addressing personal health care matters.  It also offers an extraordinary measure of protection to companies that want to impose their religious views on their employees.

It's a mainstream, longstanding Colorado value that women have a right to make their own personal, private medical decisions, without interference from politicians or bosses. The Supreme Court's decision puts bosses in between women and their doctors.

This is wrong, it is dangerous to Colorado women and their health, and we are calling on our elected officials to do everything they can to protect women's privacy rights and medical decisions.

If a corporation can interfere in women's medical decisions and opt-out of laws they don't like, where does it stop? Reproductive health care may be only the beginning. What about blood transfusions? AIDS drugs? Any medical care the corporation decides they have a "religious objection" to including in their insurance coverage?

 Bosses and politicians should stay out of our business.Ē
