Supreme Court faces 4-4 split in Obamacare contraception case

Supreme Court, Washington D.C.

(Worthy News) - The Supreme Court on Wednesday headed toward a possible 4-4 split over a legal challenge by Christian nonprofit employers who object to providing female workers insurance covering birth control as required by President Barack Obama's healthcare law.

An evenly split ruling, with the court's four liberals backing the Obama administration against the four conservative justices, would leave in place lower-court rulings rejecting challenges brought by the Christian organizations that oppose providing contraception coverage for religious reasons.

The Christian employers call contraception immoral and argue that the government should not compel religious believers to choose between following their faith and following the law. They argue they should get the complete exemption from the mandate already given to places of worship such as churches, mosques and temples. [ Source ]

  1. Great, maybe we should leave the supreme court with an even number, that way they won't destroy our constitution and our republic with inane decisions.

  2. If you don't want a kid I suggest you sew it up or gut it out!! then your problem would be solved and leave those poor ladies alone you can't force nuns to take contraceptive pills when they don't even have a man in their life you idiot
