The U.S. Supreme Court wrapped up its term with a bang today, issuing two major decisions.
In one case, the court ruled that closely-held corporations, usually family-owned businesses like Hobby Lobby — the national arts and crafts chain that brought the suit — cannot be required to provide coverage for birth control methods that they object to for religious reasons.
Here & Now gets reaction from both sides of that case: Luke Goodrich was part of the team that argued Hobby Lobby's case, and Judy Waxman is with the National Women's Law Center.
- Luke Goodrich, deputy general counsel for The Becket Fund for religious liberty, which argued the case for Hobby Lobby before the Supreme Court.
- Judy Waxman, vice president for health and reproductive rights at the National Women's Law Center, which is dedicated to advancing women's equality and opportunity.
