Supreme Court Upholds Obamacare Contraception and Morning After Pill Coverage

The Daily Banter Headline Grab. From AP:

Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor on Wednesday denied a request to block part of the federal health care law that requires employee health-care plans to provide insurance coverage for the morning-after pill and similar emergency contraception pills.

Hobby Lobby Stores and a sister company, Mardel Inc., sued the government, claiming the mandate violates the religious beliefs of its owners.

In an opinion, Sotomayor said the stores fail to satisfy the demanding legal standard for blocking the requirement on an emergency basis. She said the companies may continue their challenge to the regulations in the lower courts.

    The headline is extremely misleading.

    Justice Sotomayor only refused to issue an injunction to block the implementation.

    The legal standards are much stricter for an injunction.

    The underlying case continues.

    Hold the celebration.
