Welch Reacts to Hobby Lobby Supreme Court Decision

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Peter Welch made the following statement after the United States Supreme Court's decision in Hobby Lobby Stores v. Sebelius:

"The Supreme Court got it wrong today. A woman's access to health care should not depend on the religious views and conscience of her employer," said Welch. "Decisions about the use of contraceptives should be between a woman and her doctor. The Court's misguided decision in this case is a good example of why Congress should have included a public option in the Affordable Care Act, which would have removed employers from the equation of health care coverage."
