Supreme Court halts contraception mandate for religious groups
A new battle could be brewing over a portion of the Affordable Care Act.
Thursday morning, the Supreme Court has temporarily blocked law’s key birth control requirement Justice Sonia Sotomayor exempted two catholic nonprofits from having to provide contraceptive coverage to employees.
The ruling came Tuesday night, just hours before the law went into effect.
It sets up another high-stakes legal challenge for President Obama’s signature legislation.
The Federal Government will now file a legal response to the ruling.
