Nonprofits' Contraceptive Cases Next For Justices

Updated: Monday, July 7 2014, 10:18 AM CDT

Faith-affiliated charities, colleges and hospitals are leading the next legal dispute over religion, birth control and the health law that's likely to be resolved by the Supreme Court.

The issue in more than four dozen lawsuits from religious nonprofit groups that oppose some or all contraception as immoral is how far the Obama administration must go to accommodate them.

Just this past week, the justices relieved businesses with religious objections of their obligation to pay for women's contraceptives among a range of preventive services the law calls for in their health plans.

The nonprofits already could opt out of covering the contraceptives. But they say the administration's accommodation is not enough because they remain complicit in the provision of government-approved contraceptives to women covered by their plans.
