Hobby Lobby wins birth control case

Supreme Court split 5-4

The Supreme Court ruled in favor of Hobby Lobby today in a 5-4 split decision.

The company had argued that the Affordable Care Act's requirement that the company provide contraception for their employees was uncontitutional and a violation of their religious rights.

The Christian company, owned by the Green family, had argued that they are not making a statement about whether or not their female employees use contraception, only whether the company should be required to provide it.

The company sepcifically objected to those drugs that terminate a pregnancy.

The Green family also owns Mardel's.
