The Supreme Court’s Baffling Science Illiteracy Is Becoming a Big Problem for America

On Monday, the Supreme Court in their controversial Hobby Lobby ruling equated contraception to abortion. The problem with their decision is this: There’s absolutely zero science to back it up.

“The owners of the businesses have religious objections to abortion, and according to their religious beliefs the four contraceptive methods at issue are abortifacients,” Justice Samuel Alito said.

Of the four methods Christian company Hobby Lobby claims cause abortion (Plan B, ella, and two IUDs), exactly zero prevent a fertilized egg from implanting in the uterus. All four methods work by stopping fertilization from happening in the first place.

This illiteracy has bothered me for a long time.  What are the chances for long term success of a system that has 9 people without a clue making life altering decisions for 350,000,000 people?
