The 82 Employers Who Want to Deny Birth Control Coverage
In the case of Burwell v. Hobby Lobby, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled for the first time ever that bosses have the power to deny basic health coverage to their employees. While we don’t yet know exactly how many women will lose coverage of their contraceptive care, we do know that Justice Samuel Alito’s decision was certainly not “narrow.” It opened the door to allow many employers to deny coverage for any type of birth control to their employees.
Just how many organizations are challenging the Affordable Care Act (ACA)'s contraception mandate? The count stands at a whopping 82 — so far, according to The Daily Beast. Scroll through the list of companies, nonprofits, and universities below, or share our crazy-long graphic of the list.
Just try not to wear out your finger before you get to the most important part: JOINING THE DISSENT.
