Breaking News….The U. S. Supreme Court Rules on Contraception Case
The U. S. Supreme Court dealing another blow to the Obama Administration by striking down a mandate that Hobby Lobby provide contraception to employees that they feel violate their religious freedoms.
The court announcing the 5-4 decision a short time ago, that “closely held” companies like the arts and crafts store could not be forced under terms of the Affordable Care Act to provide medications they believe conflict with their religious beliefs, like the “Morning After” pill.
The opinion was written by Judge Samuel Alito. It does not affect all companies.
While seen as a victory for those who have fought against the federal healthcare law and it’s mandates, others say the justices could have gone farther but opted for a narrow ruling.
Hobby Lobby does provide other birth control options to employees but objected to those they felt affect an egg after fertilization.
So far there has been no reaction from the White House.
