Somebody Ask Alison If She Thinks Your Boss Can Decide How You Fuck

Grimes sent out yet another begging-for-money email this afternoon.  It stood out like a sore thumb in my inbox among the dozens of emails from women's groups and progressive organizations condemning the anti-woman, anti-family, anti-freedom, corporations-as-masters supreme court decision.

Probably the most breathtaking aspect of the majority's opinion is how it just doesn't give two shits about women. Alito's decision doesn't take into account, even for a line or two, how a ruling for "religious liberty" is a ruling against women, dismissing that notion outright, in fact. This is all about making sure that butthurt Christians can do what their specific sect believes will please an invisible sky wizard, which includes, for some, making sure that women have those goddamn babies. The majority just ignores that there's real women with real lives who this decision really affects.
Is Grimes not aware of the catastrophic blow that decision is to millions of working families and their children?  Or does she agree with the Sammy "christian sharia for all!" Alito that the freakazoid fantasies of employers should trump workers' health and freedom?
Or does she just not give a flying fuck about anybody who can't afford to max out on campaign contributions to her?

Half the population of the Commonwealth, Alison.  That's whose votes you just lost by ignoring the greatest direct threat to women's lives and safety since another Supreme Court denied workers any rights at all in 1905.
