Senate Republicans on Wednesday blocked a Democratic attempt to pass legislation that would force companies to provide all forms of contraceptive coverage to their employees, regardless of their religious beliefs.
Democratic leaders sought to advance the Protect Women’s Health From Corporate Interference Act, a bill aimed at undoing the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision.
In Hobby Lobby, the Court ruled that the Obamacare law and its related regulations cannot compel closely held or family-owned companies from providing certain kinds of contraceptive coverage if doing so violates the owners’ religious beliefs. The religious family that owns Hobby Lobby had opposed four of the 20 contraceptive drugs and devices because they could cause abortion.
Just days later, Democrats proposed their legislation in an attempt to legislate around that ruling. While the Court insisted its ruling is narrow and only applies to some contraception methods and some companies, Democrats have insisted that the ruling is an attack on women’s rights.
