    What did the Supreme Court decide on Obamacare and birth control?

    On June 30, the Supreme Court ruled that Obamacare's birth control mandate violated religious freedoms — and that certain companies would not have to comply with the requirement.

    The Supreme Court ruling was the culmination of a lengthy legal battle over one of Obamacare's most controversial provisions: the requirement that nearly-all employers offer insurance that covers birth control at no cost. Nearly 100 companies challenged that part of the health care law in lawsuits, and the Obama administration was forced to scale the requirement back in 2012, after fierce outcry from religiously-affiliated universities and hospitals.

    The Supreme Court decision allows "closely-held" corporations (those where five or fewer people own the majority of the business) to opt-out of the contraceptive mandate if they have a sincere religious objection to birth control. While the decision does not rollback many of the other ways that Obamacare expands birth control access, it does open the door for more challenges to the Affordable Care Act — and other federal laws — on the grounds of religious liberty.
