DCCC Chairman Steve Israel Statement on Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby Decision

DCCC Chairman Steve Israel released the following statement regarding today’s Supreme Court Hobby Lobby decision:

“This decision by the Supreme Court is both disappointing and disturbing and further reinforces that we need to put a Democratic majority in control of Congress. Republicans in Congress have long made it clear that their ideological agendas come before a women’s right to access quality, affordable health care, and now the Supreme Court is only piling on even more. There is no question that this decision makes it harder for women across the country to access the care they need. Women’s health care decisions should be made by a woman and her doctor, not her boss.  If the Supreme Court isn’t willing to protect women’s rights, House Democrats will.”
