Wasserman Schultz: Hobby Lobby Ruling ‘Totally Unacceptable’


Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.) says the Hobby Lobby ruling, which says that for-profit companies do not have to provide coverage for contraceptives due to religious views, is “totally unacceptable.”

She told MSNBC on Monday that the decision is a “rallying cry” for voters. “It’s very clear to American women yet again,” she said, “that Republicans want to do everything they can to have the long hand of government and now the long hand of business reach into a woman’s body and make health-care decisions for her.”

Wasserman Schultz explained that for the election in 2016, the Democratic party can underscore the importance to American women of who is elected  president and who controls Congress.

“Republicans want to constrict and restrict women’s choices, and Democrats want make sure that women have the ability to make their own choices,” she concluded.
