SCOTUS to Hear Challenge to Obamacare’s Contraception Mandate


The Supreme Court today agreed to hear its fourth challenge to the Affordable Care Act, this time from religious nonprofit organizations that say the requirement that health plans provide birth control violates their religious beliefs.

This will be the second time the Supreme Court considers a lawsuit against the requirement. Last year in Hobby Lobby v. Burwell the justices ruled that companies were not required to cover the contraception mandate.

Correction: The Hobby Lobby case was decided in 2014.
