Women's Groups Rally Against Decision

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS - Last week, Montana Senators Jon Tester and John Walsh put forward legislation to overturn the court's decision on Hobby Lobby which would allow women free access to private medical care. Montanan's today took action in support.

Planned Parenthood Montana's Grassroots Organizer Jules Shindel said that "we're out here to show our dissent joining the rest of the country right on the heels of an action in Missoula, and to show that we are far from ok with the ruling by the Supreme Court."

Today's rally hosted by the Montana Reproductive Rights Coalition feel that this can be about more than just birth control.

Rally goers also feel that this gives businesses control that they should not have.

Shindel said "this affects workers in general all over the country. This starts out with women, but it affects everybody because a business can make a decision about your health."

Executive Director of the Great Falls YWCA Janet Duffy said "it's a way to counteract what's happening. It disallows corporations from making decisions about women's health."

The MRRC believes this bill that was proposed last week supports them.

Duffy said "I really admire Senators Tester and Walsh for already stepping up and introducing legislation that protects women's health rights."

Shindel said of the bill that "they say they fight for women, they fight for Montanan's. This would take the affordable care act out."
