The Obama administration cannot enforce the Affordable Care Act’s contraception coverage requirements against a Catholic nuns’ order for the time being, if the nuns tell the government they object to providing that coverage, the Supreme Court ruled Friday afternoon.
The Supreme Court’s action could defuse for the moment a showdown between religious employers and the federal government over the procedures for providing contraceptive coverage to employees of hospitals, nursing homes and other entities run by religious groups.

The Supreme Court of the United States of America, really? Don’t you find it absurd that 1⃣ the federal government can and does mandate insurance coverage for contraceptives and 2⃣ the issue needs to be resolved by the SCOTUS? Contraceptives are not health care, contraceptives are not unaffordable or an insurable risk.
How can you insure a risk the insured can decide to take or not? This is like auto insurance for a guy who drives his car in the demolition derby, do ya think there is going to be a claim?
We have descended into the mud pit of political correctness for no good reason other than to beat the drums of war on women.
