Contraceptive Cases Raise Religious Liberty Issues

Jennifer Haberkorn of POLITICO does an overview of the upcoming Supreme Court cases asking the same question: “Can a for-profit company engaged in commercial activities declare religious beliefs?” Haberkorn writes, “Under the women’s preventive health benefit in the Affordable Care Act most employers must provide all Food and Drug Administration-approved forms of contraception with no co-pays … But owners of nonreligious businesses who oppose some or all contraceptives say the government shouldn’t be able to require them to break with their religious beliefs.”
