Virginians React To Supreme Court Decision

Governor McAuliffe disagrees with the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision that deals with contraceptives. Most of the justices ruled Monday that some businesses can ignore requirements of the Affordable Care Act. The Governor (pictured) wishes the nation’s highest court had ruled the other way. Travis Weber of the Family Research Council says he’s glad the court sided with the plaintiffs and in favor of religious liberty. The Hobby Lobby ruling affects mainly family-owned companies that voice religious objections to contraceptive coverage, such as “the morning after” pill.
