Press Release

Washington, DC – This morning, the United States Supreme Court issued their decision in Burwell vs. Hobby Lobby. In response, Congresswoman Betty McCollum (D-MN) issued the following statement: 

“Today’s decision from the Supreme Court is an attack on the rights of women and sets a dangerous new standard for corporate personhood that I completely reject. All women deserve the right to make their own decisions about their health, without the intrusion of their employer’s views or beliefs. My commitment is to find every legislative avenue available to reverse this ruling which is an attack on women and sound medical science.”
