Supreme Court: Family-Owned Companies Can Refuse Contraceptive Coverage



The Supreme Court says family-owned corporations can hold religious objections over the Affordable Care Act’s requirement that they cover contraceptives for women.

That opinion came in a 5-4 decision on Monday that marks the first time that the high court has ruled that profit-seeking businesses can hold religious views under federal law. And it means the Obama administration must search for a different way of providing free contraception to women who are covered under objecting companies’ health insurance plans.
