High court takes up challenge to O-Care birth control mandate

November 26, 2013

The Supreme Court will hear a case arguing that private businesses should not be required to offer their employees health insurance that covers contraception, the court announced on Tuesday.

The case centers on a controversial measure of the Affordable Care Act that business owners say violates their right to religious freedom by forcing them to pay for a service they find objectionable.

It will be the first time that the high court will revisit the healthcare law since last June, when it upheld the constitutionality of the overall law and affirmed a requirement that individuals carry health insurance or pay a penalty.

The court will hear the case this term, most likely in the spring.
