Washington, D.C.—An abortion and contraceptive rights supporter shoves his poster in the face of an unfazed anti-abortion activist holding a sign that reads, “I am the Pro-Life Generation,” outside the U.S. Supreme Court after the Hobby Lobby verdict June 30. In a 5–4 opinion, SCOTUS ruled in favor of the craft store chain’s religious objections to providing contraceptives at no cost to employees, as mandated by the Affordable Care Act. “Protecting the free exercise rights of corporations like Hobby Lobby…protects the religious liberty of the humans who own and control those companies,” Justice Samuel Alito wrote.
