Hobby Lobby update. As of Tuesday, March 25, 2014 , the U.S. Supreme Court appeared split over the issue of the Obamacare birth control mandate – requiring employers to provide contraception coverage to their workers – through health plans. Until a final decision is reached, a crucial part of the Affordable Care Act remains unresolved. Reportedly, the court’s more liberal justices quickly offered defense to the administration’s positions. Justice Antonin Scalia, almost predictably, took an opposing view: “There is not a single case that says a for profit corporation can’t make a free religion claim.”
On Tuesday, protesters felt so strongly about their positions they braved 32 degree temperatures outside the U.S. Supreme Court building to have their voices heard.
