court rules on contraception

The Supreme Court struck down a key part of President Obama’s health-care law Monday, ruling that family-owned businesses do not have to offer their employees contraceptive coverage that conflicts with the owners’ religious beliefs.
The decision deeply split the court, not only on its holding that the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) protects some businesses from offering contraceptive coverage but also on how broadly the ruling will apply to other challenges in which businesses say laws impose on their religious beliefs.
Here is the ruling.

  1. Yes, it's morally wrong to provide the health care needed. Pensions are going away one golden parachuted bankruptcy at a time. So why wait, roll up those advertised benefits while they're still working for you. Caveat emptor is the ruling caution, but now it includes shopping for jobs.
