The Supreme Court just made a decision that is anything but good for Obama. The highest court in the land just ruled that the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago must rehear objections to Obama’s precious Obamacare contraception mandate.
The court first heard the case last year, when University of Notre Dame claimed that Obama’s contraception mandate violated the university’s religious convictions by forcing them to effectively fund abortion-inducing drugs.
Religious organizations like Notre Dame are currently only able to file an objection with the Department of Health and Human Services under the Affordable Care Act. After this, the insurance company pays off all the costs of an abortion.
However, this still allows Notre Dame employees obtain abortion-inducing drugs, which leaves the university culpable for providing their employees with an insurance plan that allowed them to get an abortion.
Now the Supreme Court has ruled that the 7th Circuit Court must “revisit the Notre Dame case in light of the high court’s ruling in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby last year.”
Notre Dame has announced that they are extremely “gratified” by the Supreme Court’s decision.
“Notre Dame continues to challenge the federal mandate as an infringement on our fundamental right to the free exercise of our Catholic faith,” said Paul J. Brown, Notre Dame’s Vice President for Public Affairs.
