High court decision misunderstood


Contrary to what is stated in the first paragraph of the article “Jews divided on Hobby Lobby decision” (WJW, July 3), the Supreme Court did not rule any part of the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) to be unconstitutional. It held that certain regulations, issued by the Obama administration pursuant to that act, violated the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993. It was those regulations – not the Affordable Care Act itself – that required employer-provided health insurance to cover contraception.

Passions and emotions are already high enough on this issue.

Misinformation can only stoke unnecessary conflict.
