On June 30, the Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 decision taht the government cannot require certain employers to provide insurance coverage for birth control if they conflict with the employer’s religious beliefs.

The decision has sparked a national debate over women’s rights, contraception and health care, not to mention religion.

Cristina Page, a consultant for the Institute of Reproductive Health Access and the author of How the Pro-choice Movement Saved America, tells Hofstra’s Morning Wake Up Call about the dangerous precedent set by the ruling.
