The Supreme Court's ruling against the Obamacare abortion pill mandate came as quite a blow to the Obama administration, which has consistently harangued that the mandate is "lawful and essential to women's health."

The White House took this argument yet a step further Monday, stating that bosses who decide not to provide contraceptive coverage to their employees will be jeopardizing women's health:

In November, the White House felt confident that the Supreme Court would rule in favor of its logic:

The health care law puts women and families in control of their health care by covering vital preventive care, like cancer screenings and birth control, free of charge....We believe this requirement is lawful and essential to women’s health and are confident the Supreme Court will agree.

Guess again. This First Amendment victory is a huge success for every American. Employers have the liberty to follow their religious beliefs, and women have the freedom to work for whomever they choose to get the health care they "need."
