Supreme Court To Take Up Hobby Lobby Birth Control Case

  • The case filed by Hobby Lobby, a craft store owned by Christians who don’t believe in birth control and refuses to cover it under the Affordable Care Act, is headed to the Supreme Court. In March 2014, the highest court in the land will take up the question of whether a company can refuse to cover contraception for its employees due to the religious objections of its owners. Presently, only churches and other religious non-profits can refuse to cover BC. [Huffington Post]
