The U.S. Supreme Court decision ruling in favor of the Hobby Lobby is no doubt a result of the high court’s gender disparity.

One more female justice could have made a difference. And instead, business owners would be responsible for all types of women’s birth control — despite religious objections. With only three women to six men, it should be obvious that women are disproportionately represented on the highest court of the land. And it’s high time to take that into consideration when an appointment is made.

Both genders should fluctuate between four and five, no more and no less. Life is a balancing act. With more diversity, the Supreme Court would be better balanced.
