Boy, that escalated quickly.

Soon after Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg issued her dissent to the court’s controversial decision that closely held corporations are not required to pay for contraception if the company has religious objections, Jonathan Mann has turned Ginsburg’s words into a song.

The court’s ruling has generated a firestorm of debate from both sides, with social networks alight with arguments over it in regards to women’s reproductive rights and the role of religion in legal decisions.

Recorded as part of Mann’s ongoing “Song a Day” project, the singer-songwriter adds a warm acoustic guitar melody somewhat reminiscent of Weezer beneath passages from the dissent.
