SCOTUS Temporarily Halts ObamaCare Contraception Mandate
Not sure what game Sotomayor is playing here, but you can be sure a liberal like her doesn’t have our best interests at heart.
Check it out:
Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, a Obama appointee, issued a temporary injunction against the ObamaCare contraception mandate. The law forces employers, including those with religious affiliations, to provide health insurance, including coverage for contraception and abortion-inducing drugs. The injunction went into effect just hours before the mandate did. Sotomayor gave the Obama administration until 10 a.m. Friday to respond.
In this particular case, Sotomayor’s injunction protects a group of Catholic nuns based in Denver:
In her order, Sotomayor said the government is temporarily prevented from enforcing contraceptive coverage requirements against the Denver-based group, Little Sisters of the Poor Home for the Aged, and must respond by 10 a.m. Friday.
Several organizations, including the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Washington, the Catholic Diocese of Nashville, Catholic University and the Michigan Catholic Conference, had asked justices to block the law until their arguments were heard. Parts of the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare, go into effect on Wednesday.
