SCOTUS Accepts Religious Nonprofits' Challenge to HHS Contraception Mandate

Obamacare's contraception mandate is once again being brought to court. The Supreme Court announced Friday it will allow seven religious nonprofits to challenge the law, which as of now forces them to violate their faith.

In the past couple of years, Christian business owners have refused to comply with the Health and Human Services' birth control mandate because some of the contraceptives they would have had to provide employees were abortifacients. In Hobby Lobby v. Burwell, SCOTUS sided with Christian-owned Hobby Lobby, acknowledging their belief that life begins at conception.

Yet, that decision did not protect nonprofits such as Little Sisters of the Poor. An international congregation of Roman Catholic women religious, Little Sisters of the Poor filed a class-action lawsuit against the HHS mandate, yet the administration threw out their challenge because the organization did not meet their exemption requirements. 

It seems SCOTUS will now give these Catholic nuns another chance to make their case, as well as other religious charities, schools and hospitals who have qualms with the mandate.
