Christian US firms oppose employee contraception cover

Activists with opposing views about contraceptive health care mix outside the Supreme Court on March 25, 2014 in WashingtonChristian American employers appeared before the Supreme Court on Tuesday to challenge a law obliging firms to provide employees with health insurance that covers certain forms of contraception. Judges are once again pondering the limits of the United States’ constitutional division between church and state because of a disputed part of President Barack Obama’s signature health reform. The so-called “Obamacare” law obliges private employers to pay for employee health insurance that covers some kinds of contraception, a measure fiercely opposed by some Christian business owners. And, predictably, the nine-member Supreme Court appears split between a liberal wing leaning towards a defense of women’s rights and a conservative once sympathetic to religious belief.
