Supreme Court Sides With Christian College In Birth Control Case

The three female justices of the Supreme Court sharply rebuked their colleagues Thursday for siding with a Christian college in the latest battle over providing women with contraceptive coverage under the Affordable Care Act, saying the court was retreating from assurances offered only days ago.
In a short, unsigned opinion, the court said that Wheaton College in Illinois, at least temporarily, does not have to comply even with compromise provisions in the law that the college says still violate its religious beliefs.
Justice Sonia Sotomayor said the action cast doubt on the very accommodation the courts majority seemed to endorse Monday in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby, which concerned businesses that objected to providing birth control that offends the owners beliefs.

that’s the whole point of a case-by-case basis.
if they’re pissed why did they hear the case?
Leftists just love coercion, so much so that thwarting it is seen as a violation of their own freedom.
Sotomayor disagreed. She said the injunction risks depriving hundreds of Wheatons employees and students of their legal entitlement to contraceptive coverage.
Oh, they’re so entitled, aren’t they, Mrs. Wise Latina... how did this idiot get onto the court? Same way as Kagan I expect.
Thank God this was put on hold. Total fascism.
She is only wise when snacking on Wise potato chips.
Oh boo hop. The justices are following standard procedure and law for allowing a non-inmposition while awaiting further decisions.
Jeeze, don’t count your chickens....
Unfortunately the dam holding back the dam* fascism consists of only five men, two of whom are in their late 70’s, and two of whom are squishy.
The executive and the bureaucracy are shot. The number of principled men in the legislative branch with decent principles is weepable or laughable depending on one’s proclivities. The end is not yet, but it looks to be in sight.
Your analysis is sadly correct. ANY pro-American decision can be overturned at any time. We thought we’d effectively beat the Sodomy lobby after Bowers V Harwick, but then we saw the disgusting Lawrence V Texas case.
I have seen the presumed nominees Obama is thinking of for the SCOTUS (all of whom are women), one is the dumbass senator from Minnesota and the other a Marxist Californian black supremacist.
Now, I personally don’t see him getting these opportunities, because Ginsburg is resistant to retiring, and despite how pathetic the Repukes are, they are likely to take the senate.... but let’s remember that 2016 is a horrible year for Republicans in terms of senate opportunities, and the establishment will force another moderate slime to lose another presidential election.
These are the worst of times, and we need the 2nd Amendment now more than ever. The Democrats have become an openly socialist anti-constitutional party, and we have heard the threats from all their chosen constituencies whether its Farakhan’s promise to curb-stomp blue eyed babies, Dan Savage’s desire to rape conservatives, or that Climatard’s promise to throw enemies in jail, we are years away from a French-style ‘Great Terror’.
When you tell your children about America, tell them it is right now under attack.
Very shaky situation. Though the MSM keeps spinning it to set up the ‘war on women’ false narrative, this is requiring Christians to provide free abortions for employees.
ABORTION is never mentioned in any media coverage. It’s ‘contraception’ or ‘reproductive health rights.’
It’s Christians being legally required to kill unborn children or being allowed not to kill unborn babies.
Dumbed-down low information voters need simple language they can understand.
And it deprives me of my "legal entitlement" not to have to pay for someone else's "legal entitlement".
You want something, then pay for it yourself!
No one is denying access to birth control you nit wit latina.
Hey! its WAAAYCIST to challenge the wise latina... she knows the law, unlike stupid gringos!
I highly doubt that she even passed the Bar. She is affirmative Action all the way!
The ability to not pay for services not wanted nor needed should extend right down to the individual.
When has there ever bean a right to free birth control/abortions?
Never, the lib idiots just made it up.
Now they’re crying because some won’t go along with it in order to protect a true constitutional right— freedom of religion.
Oh noes its a war on WOOOOOMEN! /s
These people are nothing but modern day stalinists.
