Bad Vagina News Day in Appellate Court

Grr. I was hoping to end the week on some happy Vagina News. But alas, I bring you two infuriating decisions by appeals courts.

First, as expected, the famously conservative 5th Circuit Court of Appeals has overturned  a federal court’s earlier decision to overturn Texas’s recently-passed restrictions on reproductive rights. (It did allow a small part of the ruling, affecting availability of RU 486 to a small subset of women, to stand.)

And A DC Circuit Court has ruled that companies may deny employees contraceptive coverage under the Affordable Care Act for “religious” reasons.

Both decisions will likely be appealed to the Supreme Court.
