What Hagan and Tillis are saying about today’s Supreme Court rulings

Monday’s Supreme Court rulings on contraceptive coverage for women [1] and public sector unions [2] are predictably bringing very different reactions from U.S. Senator Kay Hagan and Thom Tillis, her Republican challenger.

Hagan released a statement calling the Hobby Lobby v. Burwell ruling ‘shameful’:

“I am extremely disappointed in today’s Supreme Court decision. It is shameful that a woman’s access to contraception is even up for debate in the year 2014. The choice about whether to use birth control should be between a woman and her doctor, not her boss, and no employer should be allowed to interfere with a woman’s access to contraception.”

House Speaker Thom Tillis tweeted that the rulings were a victory for first Amendment freedoms and a loss for the Obama administration:
