Monday’s Supreme Court rulings on contraceptive coverage for women  and public sector unions  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:
