Hobby Lobby Takes Argument To Supreme Court

This is no surprise. The 10th Circuit in which Hobby Lobby resides ruled in their favor that they could challenge the contraceptive mandate. While the 6th Circuit (TN, KY, OH, MI) ruled against Autocam and upheld the contraceptive mandate. The Supreme Court will likely take the case to resolve the issue of the differing opinions across circuits. Let's hope they read the 6th Circuit's decision which, written by a conservative justice appointed by Reagan. It was quite a good decision. It made the point that the corporation, Autocam, is not a person and therefore does not have rights under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA). That was the correct decision in my opinion.

Craft store Hobby Lobby filed papers with the Supreme Court on Monday asking it to look at its case against the Obama administrationís mandate that the company pay for birth control and abortion-causing drugs for employees.

The Health and Human Services mandate, Hobby Lobby argues, violates their religious freedom.

A federal court has already ruled in the Christian companyís favor, reports LifeNews.com.
