WASHINGTON (AP) — Republicans say they’ve won an election-year victory from a Supreme Court ruling that allows some companies to opt out of providing contraception to women under the nation’s new health care law.

But Democrats have also found encouragement from the ruling. They say it will be unpopular with younger voters and women who depend upon health insurance for birth control — two groups Democrats want to rally in this year’s midterm elections.

Republicans say the decision is a win for religious freedom and offers more evidence that President Barack Obama’s signature policy achievement is deeply flawed. Democrats say it brings attention to women’s reproductive rights, an issue Democrats have tried to highlight in key Senate races this fall.

    I am a man and I agree with you 100%. I do not see the conservative media protesting against men adding Viagra to their insurance. The privilege few are so vain and arrogant that they are out of touch with reality. What I don’t understand is this war on women. Women everywhere need to unite and vote these women haters out of office. It is obviously that these people were not born from a woman, they crawled out from under a rock!!!

    Politics and women’s rights appear to be at odds these days.

    A women’s choice to use contraception should be no one else’s business-least of all her employers!

    Hobby Lobby or whoever should not be denying women access to birth control while allowing men to have Viagra! This is simply sexist!!!

    The more this country moves forward, the more it takes backward steps!

    Men need to stay out of our WOMBS and allow us to make our own decisions regarding both abortion and birth control, this is the 21st century not the 18th!!!!!
