Supreme Court sides with religious group on birth control

Friday, January 24, 2014 - 9:15pm

The Supreme Court has sided with a religious group on the issue of providing birth control coverage to employees.

A Catholic-affiliated group, the Little Sisters of the Poor, had argued against covering contraceptive costs, for religious reasons.

Today, the Supreme Court voted to extend a temporary injunction that exempts the charity from the Obamacare conception mandate.

The court said the Obama Administration could not enforce the requirement if the group tells the Health and Human Services Department in writing that it is a religious nonprofit that opposes contraceptives for religious reasons.

The case now goes back to the lower courts for review.
