Justice delays health law's birth control mandate
Associated Press ^ | Jan 1, 2014 12:18 AM (ET) | By JESSE J. HOLLAND

WASHINGTON (AP) - Only hours before the law was to take effect, a Supreme Court justice on Tuesday blocked implementation of part of President Barack Obama's health care law that would have forced some religion-affiliated organizations to provide health insurance for employees that includes birth control.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor's decision came after a flurry of efforts by Catholic-affiliated groups from around the nation. Those groups had rushed to the federal courts to stop Wednesday's start of portions of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.

I wonder if it has anything to do with the 30+ lawsuits pending against The Sebaceous Cyst.

As a government grows it is bound to collide with groups or individuals that will oppose mandates as a matter of conscience. The big question is will the Supreme Court allow a conscience exemption for this mandate.

Starting tomorrow they were going to have to start fining The Little Sisters of the Poor. Possibly seizing their assets and putting old folks and nuns on the street. Maybe a bridge to far for even Sotomyer.

...”The government is “temporarily enjoined from enforcing against applicants the contraceptive coverage requirements imposed by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act,” Sotomayor said in the order”.....

Is that just for the Nuns or Religious Groups....or is it also for those who who oppose this mandate? I don’t like the sounds of the word “temporary”....but at least it’s stopped it appears, for now.

Sotomayor is a Sebacean? Probably related to Captain Crais as she is no Aeryn Sun....

My question exactly.....no doubt it’s another fly in the ointment of Obamacare that could continue to bring it down altogether.

The 10nth court rejected The Little Sisters of the Poor appeal on New Years Eve. Black hearted basterds. A lot of those nuns are Latinos.

Slyfox - It was nice when the surgeon told me, “Because the infection is so bad, the anesthetic will not work - it makes the anesthetic ineffective.....” OK......!!!!

Eventually I had to say, as I kicked my feet, held the table with a death-grip, and did all I could do to withhold screaming - “Doc.....I can’t take any more.....” to which he replied, “Well, I’d better stop. We don’t want word getting out that we torture our patients.....”

Had a few non-infected ones removed easily with no problem, no pain.

This was worst I’ve had other than open heart surgery to replace genetically defective aortic valve.......

Getting rid of Kathleen might be worse indeed......

I’m surprised too, but maybe it’s not so surprising because the “Wise Latina” Sotomayer is Catholic.

After years of Catholicism-guilt-training and confessions, she has a conscience about FORCING contraceptives on people against their own will:

I think it is a ruse. These people dont back down.

For one thing, it has DIVERTED ATTENTION, once again.

And then, to the complainers, it looks like a bone.

But just wait for the Friday night dump - it’ll be back and not a peep.

Conscience ?!

None of these low-lifes would be in this business if they had any conscience.

Looks like there will soon be a vacancy on the bench. You don't piss on Dear Leader's blazing hostility for non Muslim religions and not expect consequences. Unless of course she suddenly has a change of heart and rescinds her action.
