Supreme Court Agrees to Hear Hobby Lobby Case

The Supreme Court has agreed to take up two significant religious liberty cases.

Under provisions of the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare, employers over a certain size are required to offer insurance coverage which includes abortion and contraception to employees.

Two businesses owned by people with strong Christian convictions – Oklahoma-based arts and crafts chain store Hobby Lobby and Pennsylvania-based wood cabinet producer Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp. — raised objections to the mandate.

The court will hear arguments in March and a ruling may be issued in late June.
