Supreme Court: Hobby Lobby Wins in Fight over Birth Control in ObamaCare

WASHINGTON, D.C. – This morning the U.S. Supreme Court decided Hobby Lobby cannot be compelled to furnish potentially abortion-inducing drugs to its employees.
The Religious Freedom Restoration Act allows for closely-held corporations like Hobby Lobby to maintain their religious outlook and still do business, the justices ruled. 
“The Court says that the government has failed to show that the mandate is the least restrictive means of advancing its interest in guaranteeing cost-free access to birth control,” according to the SCOTUSblog. “Justice Kennedy's concurring opinion says that the government could pay for the coverage itself, so that women receive it.” 
Hobby Lobby argued in court that the HHS mandate provision of the Affordable Care Act – which requires all employers to provide contraception, sterilization, and abortion-inducing drugs to female employees without charging a co-pay – violates its owners' evangelical Christian faith.
Hobby Lobby is the largest and only non-Catholic privately owned business to file a lawsuit against the HHS mandate.
This decision is a stand for truth and for the Catholic Faith. We as Catholics may not support birth control or help in the dissemination of such.   As I've recently detailed in 4 Disastrous Effects of Birth Control, society is degenerating rapidly as a result.  This is one victory in a battle to restore Christian Civilization.
