Clinton: Hobby Lobby Ruling a Step Toward What You See in ‘Undemocratic,’ Extremist Countries

Hillary Clinton thinks the Supreme Court’s ruling in the Hobby Lobby case on Monday is a step toward the kind of anti-women policies seen in extremist, “undemocratic” nations.

The Supreme Court found that employers with religious objections can opt out of the HHS mandate to provide coverage for contraception. 

“It is a disturbing trend that you see in a lot of societies that are very unstable, antidemocratic, and frankly prone to extremism,” she said at the Aspen Institute on Monday. 

In such societies, the former secretary of state explained, “women and women’s bodies are used as the defining and unifying issue” to bring men together. These men “behave in ways that are disadvantageous to women but which prop up them because of their religion, their sect, their tribe, whatever.”
