Capps ‘Disappointed’ in Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby Decision

Source: Chris Meagher for Rep. Lois Capps

Rep. Lois Capps, D-Santa Barbara, on Monday released the following statement on the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby:

"The personal beliefs of a boss should not be imposed on his employees, and should not give him the right to take away access to basic health care, especially birth control. I am disappointed the court does not agree.

"The majority of Americans believe that women should be able to make their own decision when it comes to their health care, including their use of birth control. I am disheartened that the court has chosen to take a woman’s personal health-care decision out of her own hands and put it into the hands of her boss."

Chris Meagher is the press secretary for Rep. Lois Capps, D-Santa Barbara.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
