Whose religious liberty, anyway?

I don't know if the final decision will come out this way, but this news says to me that the Supreme Court has decided that religious institutions have to explain how their employees can exercise their religious liberty -- which includes access to contraceptives if those employees so choose. The focus here has shifted from the aggrieved employers who can't bring themselves to sign a piece of paper to the rights of employees! My, my...

I want a country where it is taken for granted that women can get contraceptives if they want/need them. The Supreme Court's stance seems to take that right for granted.
