arguing that "secular" businesses should not be exempt from the mandate.
The 19 senators planned to file a brief before the court, which is still weeks away from considering the closely watched case. Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., who planned to make her case on the Senate floor, adamantly defended the Obama administration's side.
"What's at stake in this case before the Supreme Court is whether a CEO's personal beliefs can trump a woman's right to access free or low-cost contraception under the Affordable Care Act," she said in prepared remarks.

Fascists do as fascists are.
‘Dem senators urge SCOTUS to crush Little Sisters of the Poor’.
If our guys had any balls, they’d be calling out Murray and her groupies on the senate floor for the blackshirts they are.
Until it inconveniences the Left's never-ending drive to insinuate it's agenda into every nook and cranny of our society.
If our guys had any balls, we wouldn't be in this situation.
“Our guys” are too busy signing on budget deals that shortchange disables veterans.
Another in the future: "Democratic Senators force Grandmothers to use Birth Control Pills"
But, it’s OK to grant total exemptions to the SEIU and other commie unions?
The arrogance of this criminal administration knows no bounds.
Time to warm up the tar kettles, IMO. We may yet see the blood of tyrants mixed with the blood of patriots refreshing the tree of liberty. Sooner rather than later would be better. I really don’t want my kids and grandkids to have to deal with the lyin’ scum that have become our elected elitists.
What's next, a woman's right to Ron Jeremy.
Well, from Article III the congress has lots of power it is too frightened to use against our runaway courts.
“If our guys had any balls,
If our guys had any balls, we wouldn’t be in this situation.”
If WE had any balls, we wouldn’t be in this situation.
Where is the Hobby Lobby CEO saying "You can't have contraception!!"?
I thought he was just saying, "I'm not going to pay for it.".
Right to access? What does that mean?
It sounds like a woman couldn’t go out to any 1 of tens of thousands of doctors to get a prescription and then go to any of a million pharmacies to fill said prescription.
heck i thought women could do that already.
Were it a different age, I would have one plastered on my shield as I enter into battle against The Regime.
Should it come to it in my time, I will have one in my pocket at the appropriate time.
This stinks of mandatory state religion.
The Demcrats are establishing “god” in the party image.
Oh sorry, we don’t do Kon-sty-two-shun here. It’s racist, sexist and homophobic.
Now go pay your taxes. Your hard working government needs a raise. :)
Is there a list of the Dem. senators who signed that brief?
The reality is that the left has the GOP establishment scared to death of losing the 'women's vote' with the Democrat's 'war on women' meme and they fear that opposing the Democrat attempt to influence the Supreme Court on the contraception issue that Obamacare has brought will hurt their RINO candidates in November. This mindset ignores the fact that the establishment GOP is losing the conservative vote big-time for their timidity in just such situations as this.
I’m not sure the court will accept the brief.
