Supreme Court Stays Birth Control Mandate During Little Sisters of the Poor's Case

Breaking:


Little Sisters of the Poor is a Catholic charity that was fighting Obama's birth control/abortion mandate. They sought an injunction against enforcement of the mandate while they were litigating the case. Obama's HHS, of course, refused, and claimed that they could not possibly be so cavalier about enforcing every single mandate in the law (despite not enforcing twenty mandates they found to be politically problematic).

Gabe writes:

Little Sisters get their stay during pendency of appeal. Will not have to fill out the mandate accommodation form which facilitates a third party to provide contraceptives coverage to employees.

The "accommodation" Obama offered them was that they could sign this form which says that a third party should provide the contraception coverage to their employees. As you know, this is fiction -- it's their insurance company providing it, and yes, just right out of their premiums -- but Obama said "free birth control" and people are supposed to pretend it really is free.

Little Sisters objected to being forced to participate in the deception, and being forced to provide birth control against their religious conscience.

Oh: One of the prerequisites for the granting of an injunction is a likelihood that the party will prevail on the merits of the actual case.

So it appears, hopefully, that the Court believes Little Sisters will/should prevail at the court level.
