Absurdo e justiça

What if your boss treated gay employees differently because his church preaches that homosexuality is wrong? What if he could refuse to cover your kid’s measles vaccination because he believes the shots cause autism, or AIDS treatments because he thinks the disease is God’s revenge for sinful behavior? The Supreme Court is poised to hear a case tomorrow that could give employers an unprecedented right to deny coverage of specific medical treatments to which their employees are legally entitled -- mental health services, blood transfusions, cancer treatments, and more --  based on their personal beliefs, no matter how dangerously misguided those beliefs are. Unsurprisingly, the issue boils down to controversy over a woman’s right to choose.
