SCOTUS and Hobby Lobby
A friend of a friend, Mimi Eicholtz, shared this on Facebook, and I wanted to share it here.
By now many of you have read or heard about the Supreme Court ruling in favor of CEO Dave Green of Hobby Lobby. There were five male Justices who voted in favor of Mr. Green, allowing him to personally choose what insurance services are available to his female employees. This is a fiasco and a threat to individual rights. To protest this decision here is what I’m doing: To both Dave Green and to the Justices that voted against a woman’s reproductive rights, I am sending a brief letter. One to Mr. Green at his corporate headquarters and another to the group of Justices. I am simply writing that I protest this choice and am enclosing a hermetically sealed condom. I am weary of people just complaining. Will you join me in taking this small action? A three pack of condoms, two envelopes and a couple of stamps are all it takes. I am putting two stamps on each letter just to be certain there is enough to cover the small amount of extra weight.
Please either share this with everyone you know, copy or paste it if need be, then encourage this quiet protest to gather momentum.
Thank you for getting the ball rolling on this Mimi!
(Pun fully intended!)
The first letter goes to Justices Kennedy, Roberts, Scalia, Thomas and Alito.
