Thank God (Yes, THAT God) for the Women of the Supreme Court

Remember when Samuel Alito said that the Hobby Lobby ruling isn't a big deal? Because at least non-profits can "opt out" of providing birth control by signing a form, and then the insurer can directly cover it instead.

Hobby Lobby Heads to the Supreme Court Over Right to Deny You Your IUD
