Christian Fundamentalists, Sex & the Supreme Court

by David Rosen

The likely appointment of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court may mark the end of this round of the culture wars. For half-a-century, the U.S. has been a battleground over “moral” issues and sexual values. Key issues like birth control, teen sex-ed, abortion, health care (i.e., the ADA), gay rights and the meaning of “family” have been contested. With Barrett’s appointment, further restrictions of these and other rights can be expected.
