Posted on 03/25/2014 8:00:07 AM PDT by Kaslin
The Supreme Court will hear arguments Tuesday in a landmark religion-based legal challenge from family-owned companies that object to covering certain contraceptives in their health plans under ObamaCare.
The case challenges the health care law's so-called "contraceptive mandate," which requires employers to offer health plans with a range of services at no extra charge, including all forms of birth control for women that have been approved by federal regulators.
Some of the nearly 50 businesses that have sued over covering contraceptives object to paying for all forms of birth control. But the companies involved in the high court case are willing to cover most methods of contraception, as long as they can exclude drugs or devices that the government says may work after an egg has been fertilized.
The largest company among them, Hobby Lobby Stores Inc., and the Green family that owns it, say their "religious beliefs prohibit them from providing health coverage for contraceptive drugs and devices that end human life after conception."

I’m sure that ROberts will break a tie and claim that it’s ok to tax religious behavior . . . after all, Obambicare is a tax, ya’ know?
Does anyone know when they will make their rulling public?
Yeh we all know how Roberts will go. However Barky tells him.
Oh you are? We shall see
I think unless it is an Emergency they release ruling for this quarter in June-July?
Typically the end of the term, May thru June, unless the issue is time-pressing. Guessing not time-pressing in this case.
thanks for info
They may just toss out the whole piece of this mandate. I'd sure like that cuz it's stupid and just double dipping for Planned Parenthood.
The obamba butt licking Supreme Court will put on the show of to taking up ObamaCare contraceptive mandate in landmark case, while serving their master and rewriting the complaint to make their lord and master, baraka hussien obama, look even more princely.
Now, there is a correct headline.
Roberts’ cell phone rings, he answers it and a voice says, darkly, “Remember our agreement.” Click.
Prayers that this will go in favor of protecting the unborn.
Are you God now — you can predict how the justices will vote?
Pray that this happens.
For this case, it is highly unlikely they will go beyond the contraceptive mandate.
A Pro-Life Prayer For Our President And Public Officials
Lord God, Author of Life and Source of Eternal Life,
Move the hearts of all our public officials and especially our President, to fulfill their responsibilities worthily and well to all those entrusted to their care.
Help them in their special leadership roles, to extend the mantle of protection to the most vulnerable, especially the defenseless unborn, whose lives are threatened with extermination by an indifferent society.
Guide all public officials by your wisdom and grace to cease supporting any law that fails to protect the fundamental good that is human life itself, which is a gift from God and parents.
You are the Protector and Defender of the lives of the innocent unborn. Change the hearts of those who compromise the call to protect and defend life. Bring our nation to the values that have made us a great nation, a society that upholds the values of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all.
Mary, the Mother of the living, help us to bear witness to the Gospel of Life with our lives and our laws, through Christ, Our Lord.
