After the Supreme Court ruled Monday that the Affordable Care Act cannot force companies to pay for emergency contraceptives for their employees in violation of their religious beliefs, many on the left reacted with outrage.
“Birth control – not my boss’s business!” was one popular slogan seen throughout social media.
While guest hosting The Glenn Beck Program Monday, Dana Loesch modified some of the more popular slogans, saying hers would be more accurate, though less catchy.
Here are some of the slogans Loesch proposed:
“Not my boss’s business — but I want my boss to pay for it!”
“Hands off my uterus — just give it your dollars instead.”
“Women united will never be defeated (so pay for our birth control).”
“Not the church, not the state, women must control our fate (please finance our fate).”
Loesch said women’s access to contraceptives is no more restricted than it was before the ruling. All that has changed is that employers are no longer forced to pay for the contraceptives of others in violation of their religious liberties, she said.
Women's rights remain unchanged. They were able to obtain birth control before and after ruling.

Justice Samuel Alito wrote in his majority opinion, over a dissent from the four liberal justices, that forcing companies to pay for methods of women’s contraception to which they object violates the 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act..
