Hobby Lobby Birth Control Controversy Going To Supreme Court

The Hobby Lobby is filing a lawsuit objecting to the contraceptive coverage required under Obamacare.  The Supreme Court began hearing arguments on the case today.

A Hobby Lobby store.

The case that is being presented by Hobby Lobby is that corporations can have religious faith that would cause them to not provide contraception as part of their healthcare coverage.  Obamacare requires that contraception coverage be provided by employers.  The Hobby Lobby believes this is a violation of their religious liberty under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor hardly gave Paul Clement, attorney for Hobby Lobby, a chance to speak.  Her main point was, if corporations can hold a religious claim as to why they will not provide contraception coverage, what else can religious claims decide not to cover?  They could pick apart health coverage and only cover what the corporation deems necessary.  Doing so would also make it impossible to have uniform policies and procedures.

Justice Anthony Kennedy brought up the point that allowing a corporation to pick and choose what coverage is being given based on religious views imposes those views on the employees.  So it really comes down to the rights of the employee versus the rights of the employer.

It’s a tough case and there is going to be a lot of back and forth for sure.  It seems nearly impossible to come to an agreement everyone is happy with, so it will be a rough road to a decision for sure.  This decision will surely set the bar for cases to follow involving religious rights between the government, employers, and employees.
