Will Ginsburg’s Gender Critique Open Colleagues’ Eyes?

, The National Law Journal

What her comments will mean for the justices’ relationships with each other is harder to discern.

    Strangely enough, Her Honor is not able to point to a single piece of the Hobby Lobby opinion which was in error nor a single fact which would have changed the logic of the opinion. I‘m starting to think Her Honor feels desperate.

    Yet another story ignoring the pesky fact that the Hobby Lobby decision in no practical way restricts women‘s access to birth control. By citing the bipartisan, Bill Clinton-signed Religious Freedom Restoration Act, the majority merely obligated policymakers to find less restrictive means by which to pay for four out of 20 ACA-mandated forms of birth control, all of which are otherwise fairly inexpensive to begin with.

    It seems to this observer that an increasingly frail Justice Ginsburg, who many on the left have not so subtly encouraged to resign while Democrats can still control the installment of her successor, may be working to quiet such chatter by proving she‘s indispensable in defending against those mean old Republican males‘ War on Women.
