Bennet Statement on Supreme Court Ruling in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby

Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet issued the following statement on the Supreme Court’s ruling in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby. The 5-4 decision stated that closely held companies cannot be required to pay for health care coverage of certain contraceptives for their employees.

“The Supreme Court’s troubling decision now gives employers the ability to dictate even the most basic health care services for their employees. As a husband and father of three daughters, I know women should be empowered to make their own health care decisions based on what they believe is best for them or their family.”
