Presuming that the Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is one of the leftists, he expressed frustration with the Supreme Court’s ruling on Wednesday because the Trump administration expanded the scope of the exemptions required by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) , Requiring employers to provide insurance, including contraception, and promised that if elected, he will return to the Obama-era policies.
Biden said in a statement: “As the Supreme Court’s decision was disappointing, there is a clear path to resolve it: the election of a new president to end Donald Trump’s uninterrupted attempts to undermine the Affordable Care Various aspects of the bill.”

Years of litigation-and the election of a new president-have gradually changed the original form of contraceptive authorization. ACA did not explicitly mention contraceptives, but said the plan must cover certain preventive services proposed by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HSRA), including contraceptives.
The Obama Administration’s HSRA has always made a wide exemption for places of worship in good faith, and later proposed a narrower exemption for charities with religious beliefs (such as “poor little sisters”), sometimes called “accommodation”, which is It was decided on Wednesday. According to the history of the statutes formulated by Justice Samuel, the narrower scope of exemptions enables such groups to self-certify that they are opposed to the payment of contraceptives, and therefore has an obligation to make insurance companies or “third-party managers” the groups’ Employees provide contraceptives. Alito agreed on Wednesday.
However, the Obama administration does not allow such exemptions for private companies whose owners oppose the use of contraceptives. Some charitable groups (such as Little Sisters) still believe that according to the Obama-era exemption for nonprofit organizations, they provide complicity for contraceptives .
The Supreme Court ruled in a 2014 case called Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. that some private companies could take advantage of the Obama exemption applicable to religious groups. After a year-long dispute involving the younger sisters, the organization said on Wednesday that the Trump administration’s application of a wider place of worship exemption for charities is outdated. The case was called “Poor Little Sister v. Pennsylvania”.

Biden said on Wednesday that the Supreme Court’s ruling would actually pose a danger to women.
He said: “Health care is a right and should not depend on race, gender, income or zip code. However, due to today’s decision, countless women are at risk of losing access to affordable preventive health care.”
Biden added that he believes that the hobby lobbying policy will balance the opposition of nonprofit employers to contraceptives, while also ensuring that women can use contraceptives.
He said: “These arrangements will enable women in these organizations to obtain contraceptives through plans provided by their employers rather than through their insurance companies or third-party managers,”
However, Trump’s campaign characterizes the Obama-era laws as a “war” against charities, such as poor little sisters, a group of Catholic nuns caring for poor elderly people.
Ali Pardo, Trump’s deputy communications director for 2020, said: “Joe Biden’s ten-year war with Catholic nuns and poor little sisters is finally over.” “Today’s Supreme Court ruling is religious freedom A milestone victory. Unlike Joe Biden, President Trump has firmly defended religious freedom since taking office and will always fight to defend communities of faith.”

The justices of the Supreme Court also acknowledged the long-standing legal disputes among the nuns, including the majority opinion of Justice Clarence Thomas.
Thomas wrote: “In the past 150 years, the little sisters have faithfully served and sacrificed, motivated by religious appeals, and surrendered for their brothers. “But in the past seven years, they Like many other religious opposition parties, they participated in the litigation and rule-making work that led to today’s decision, and had to fight for their ability to continue their noble work without violating the religious beliefs they sincerely held. “
Judge Neil Gorsuch agreed with Alito, foreshadowing that the legal struggle of the little sisters may not end. He invoked further administrative law to challenge the country behind the dispute with the little sisters.

“We are now sending these cases back to the lower courts, and Pennsylvania and New Jersey are almost certain that they continue to make the argument that the current rules are flawed in another respect, that is, the rules are arbitrary and capricious and therefore violated APA,” he said.
Alito added: “This will extend the time for the little sisters to engage in legal struggles for seven years, although during this time, any of the little sisters’ employees did not dispute the little sisters’ actions.”
Alito advocated that the court should go further than Thomas’ opinion, and ruled that the Trump administration’s exemptions were actually required by the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), so further legal action would be taken against the rule.
He said, “I will end my little sister’s legal journey.”
