Corporations are people, but women aren’t.

The Supreme Court ruled that corporations can refuse to give their employees healthcare if they feel really strongly about it. In other news, it turns out that corporations are people, but women are not. I wish I could say that I was shocked that this issue revolves around controlling women’s bodies. Would this even be a question if, instead of Catholics trying to deny women birth control, it were Jehovah’s Witnesses trying to deny people blood transfusions (as Justice Ginsburg pointed out in her dissent)?

It is remarkable to me that a corporation‘s “religious beliefs” manages to trump those of actual people.
