WASHINGTON, DC (Catholic Online) - The U.S. Supreme Court issued a stunning opinion in the Hobby Lobby case on Monday, June 30, 2013. It has ruled that employers cannot be forced to pay for abortion inducing contraceptives under the HHS mandate through which the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) will be enforced. .

Known widely as the Hobby Lobby case, the arts-and-crafts chain along with a furniture manufacturer in Pennsylvania challenged the Obamacare contraception mandate. The mandate's aim was to compel all employers to provide coverage for abortion inducing contraceptives to employees in its health insurance policy, including employers who hold sincere religious objections. 

Our children still aren't safe, support a pro-life effort that works.

Hobby Lobby is a for-profit chain of stores which is owned and operated by a family of evangelical protestant Christians who are opposed to paying for potentially abortion inducing contraceptives.

Contraceptives are readily available. That is not what was at stake in this case.

The question this case presented to the Court was whether the federal government could compel an employer who held sincere religious and moral objections to provide them under a health insurance plan or face penalties which would not only be punitive but threaten the future of the business. 

Awaiting the opinion, Hobby Lobby attorneys were optimistic, citing what they said was a favorable oral arguments session in March.
