To the Editor:
SCOTUS has decided that since corporations are human beings whose free speech equals money that they also have inviolate souls. That means they have a right to religious belief regarding their female employees.
Women must not be real citizens anymore. That’s scary.
Now religion, like gun owner responsibility and health care, has been politicized.
Real human beings are again going to split over this decision.
Of course, the new ruling leaves Viagra, Cialis, et. al. to be paid for by employees’ insurance plans.
I have read that not all female replacement hormones are involved, but I am not sure that is true.
We women can still buy those hormones if we have the money.
These hormones, because of women’s complex biology, have many more important uses than preventing unwanted pregnancies.
I won’t iterate them, but women and doctors are aware of this.
So SCOTUS seems to have decided these other uses are not needed either.
Watch for American women to get sicker and even die.
As for me, at 71, I don’t need those hormones but I am going to fight against this decision for my granddaughters and against Citizens United, which makes me less than any corporation since their free speech in the form of money trumps my rights in our courts and legislatures.
