Ingraham Fires Back: NOW Pres Calls Hobby Lobby Ruling 'Gender Bigotry'
Laura Ingraham said this morning on Fox and Friends that the left is playing a "cynical game" after yesterday's Supreme Court ruling, once again revving up the "war on women" rhetoric. In a 5-4 ruling, the justices said closely held corporations, like Hobby Lobby, don't have to cover contraception for female employees.
The company objected to the ObamaCare mandate on religious grounds. Responding to the decision, the National Organization for Women's president, Terry O'Neill, called it "gender bigotry."
Ingraham said comments like this are meant purely for political gain and argued that women across the country still have access to these birth control drugs though Planned Parenthood, which receives $500 million a year in federal funding.
"They can get their own policy. The government can also pay for it, which is probably what's going to happen. The idea that there's no way for these women to get the very small class of abortifacient drugs and other contraceptives that Hobby Lobby, on sincere religious grounds, believe violates a religious conscience is ridiculous. [O'Neill] knows it and the left knows it and Hillary knows it. This is a cynical game they're playing. And I think it's time for common sense thinking Americans to call them out on it," she said, arguing that the left is trying to distract from the fact that their economic agenda has failed women.
