Controlling women

Re the July 2 article Hobby Lobby ruling fuels uncertainty: What very few people are admitting about this ruling is the real reason behind it: Power. At it’s core, this ruling is about taking some control away from women. Conservatives have not hidden the fact — through their words and laws — that they wish it was the 1950s with women under their thumb. Why else would they “morally” object to women’s health choices, but not to men’s health choices? Many of the companies objecting on religious grounds have policies that offer complete coverage to erectile dysfunction medicines. These companies — and most conservatives — need to wake up and realize its 2014, not 1950. Women today are educated, active and very powerful. Sorry to inform them, we are also more than equal.
