Obamacare Contraception Mandate Halted--For Some

Many experts we respect call this good news, and we suppose it is, but we can't forget that there are any number of other institution that, I guess, as of today, are forced to comply with Obama's unAmerican, unconstitutional attack on the First Amendment's free exercise of religion.

From the Los Angeles Times:

"Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor granted a temporary exemption late Tuesday to a small group of Catholic nuns that shields it from having to comply with a part of President Obama's healthcare law that requires it to provide contraceptive coverage in its insurance plans.

She acted on an emergency appeal from lawyers for the group who said the nuns faced 'draconian fines' beginning on New Year's Day if they failed to comply with the law widely known as Obamacare.

Sotomayor gave the government until Friday to file a response in the case. Her order extends only to the group of nuns and does not apply more broadly to the Affordable Care Act and its requirements."

It's our understanding that Justice Sotomayor's ruling affects a number of other groups as well, but there are still others not involved in this particular case who will have to wait until the Supreme Court rules on the constitutionality of the HHS contraception mandate.

In any case, God bless the great work of the good people at the American Freedom Law Center who have battled tirelessly for freedom and justice!
