We've found the song of the summer. Well, maybe.
On Monday, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that certain for-profit companies are not required to provide birth control coverage for their employees if it conflicts with their religious beliefs. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, however, disagreed with the ruling, writing a 35-page dissent clearly stating her support for a woman's right to contraception coverage under her employer's health plan. The sharply-worded (and badass) reproach has earned much support -- including its own song.
Singer/songwriter, Jonathan Mann, has put a tune to Ginsberg's scathing dissent, making us bop along to the chorus: “Now the court, I fear, has ventured into a minefield.” While Mann took a few liberties where lyrics are concerned, the song is undeniably catchy.
Turns out, RBG's fierce dissent lends itself pretty well to a melody. Here's hoping "any decision to use contraceptive is not propelled by the government, it's the woman's autonomous choice informed by her doctor" is this summer's "Call Me Maybe." Then perhaps the government will change its tune.
Head over to Mann's YouTube page to see a full transcript of the song.
