On “Supreme Court Sacrifices Reproductive Choice for Religious Rights

Agreed. There is nothing inherently partisan about the religious freedom argument. After all RFRA was in many ways initially a liberal cause. And yet progressive religious folks have yet to mount a successful attack on the ways in which conservative religious folks have commandeered religion to advance a very specific notion of religious liberty. It would be great to see liberal religious employers use RFRA to opt out of policies they find objectionable.

On “A Threat to Religious Liberty? Hardly.

Exactly. It simply preserves a status quo that is already pretty hostile to reproductive rights--and provides ample room for abortion opponents to come up with "new" laws to test Roe.
