Since I was little, my dad
warned me of three "dangerous"
conversation topics that inevitably
lead to arguments: money, religion
and politics. My status as a broke
college student usually saves me
from offending anyone within the
first topic. However, the following
two subjects continually find pesky
ways of intertwining and infringing
upon human rights. Religion and
politics provide us with societal
frameworks. These very, separate
spheres of thought and belief
encourage humanity to flourish, to
foster goodwill towards one another,
to seek peace and to provide guidance
amidst the towering specter of
uncertainty. Yet, when these vastly
different and complicated worlds of
subjectivity collide, we, as citizens
dismantle and scatter into our
respective corners like billiards balls
at the start of a game.
When religion and politics are
muddled together, the shouting
match commences and we begin
to disregard the impact our beliefs
hold over the rights of our fellow
citizens. For example, an offensive
- well, in my opinion - float
appeared in my hometown's Fourth
of July parade. It was merely a
pickup truck with a trailer scuttling
behind it; the float's message was a
crudely sprayed equation upon the
trailer's side. In black spray paint,
the message read: "God's marriage=
1 man + 1 woman. Honk ifyou agree."
I most certainly wasn't about
to honk. The only reaction the
supposedly "correct" equation
incited was a fervent desire to
display a particular finger to the
elderly, scruffy "mountain man"
sitting in the trailer. However,
the presence of children and the
realization my reaction would
encroach upon the freedom of
speech of these individuals stopped
me. Even if I didn't agree with
the message or if I believe it was
displayed at the wrong place and
time, the parade was open to all
forms of speech. Yet, I possessed
a sneaking suspicion if a pro-
marriage equality float appeared,
its creators would be accused of
shoving their beliefs down the
townspeople's throats.
While the parade incident was
a minor example, last week the
infiltration of religion upon politics
led the Supreme Court to disregard
the rights of thousands of female
workers. In a close 5-4 ruling
last Monday, the Supreme Court

justices ruled in favor of owners of
the Hobby Lobby retail chain in a
dispute regardingthe responsibility
to cover contraception in the
insurance offered to their
employees. The Christian families
who own Hobby Lobby and
Conestoga Wood Specialties
challenged a provision of the
Affordable Care Act requiringthem
to offer contraception coverage.
Under the grounds of protecting
their religious freedom, the owners
argued offering insurance coverage
for contraception forced them to
endorse abortion.
The Affordable Care Act provides
exemptions to religious institutions,
hospitals and schools, but for-profit
companies, like Hobby Lobby,
were originally expected to cover
contraception in employee health
care plans. Now, because Hobby
Lobby is considered a privately-
held company - or a company
with the majority of shares owned
by five or less people - they're
no longer required to cover birth
control methods such as Plan B or
intrauterine devices. Prices for birth
control methods like IUDs can range
up to $1,000, and now the entirety of
these costs must come directly out of
female workers' pockets.
Although the company may only
be owned by a small number of
Christiansthe numerous individuals
employed bythe company most likely
come from a diverse array of creeds
and shouldn't have their employers'
beliefs imposed upon them. The
women requesting contraception
coverage may not even wish to
prevent pregnancy. According to a
study by the Guttmacher Institute,
1.5 million women use birth control
aid in the treatment of ovarian
cancer, ovarian cysts, endometriosis
and endometrial cancer. Likewise,
Guttmacher also found 58 percent
of birth control users utilize these
methods to reduce menstrual pain,
prevent migraines and treat acne.
Like many other treatments and
prescriptions, birth control can be a
costly medical necessity.
A decision of women's health rests
exclusively with the woman affected
by it and the beliefs she follows. I find
it preposterous an issue of women's
health was decided by five men, the
justices who comprised the majority
decision, and will continually be
decided by religiously motivated
