Distinguished Professor Ruthann Robson wrote a piece for the London School of Economics Blog discussing the pending Supreme Court cases in which corporations challenge the so-called contraceptive mandate in Obamacare on religious grounds.
Robson writes, “These cases raise several specific issues in the statutory and constitutional law of the United States. But more importantly, the cases bring to light thorny theoretical controversies common to contemporary constitutional democracies regarding the role of corporations, religious beliefs, sexual equality, and government.”
Prof. Robson is an expert on constitutional law and sexuality issues and is the co-editor of the Constitutional Law Professors Blog. Her latest book is Dressing Constitutionally: Hierarchy, Sexuality, and Democracy From Our Hairstyles to Our Shoes.
