Breaking News in the Fight HHS Mandate….
US Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor has temporarily blocked requirement for some religion-affiliated organizations provide health insurance that includes birth control. This decision came in only hours before the law went into effect. This ruling came after a request from an organization of Catholic nuns in Denver called the Little Sisters of the Poor Home for the Aged. There was a request for an emergency stay that had been denied earlier in the day by a federal appeals court. This halt has created a large buzz in the government and in religious organizations. Sotomayor has given government officials until 10 a.m. EST Friday to respond to this order she requested. A decision on whether to make the temporary injunction permanent or dissolve it will have to take place sometime by then. Time will tell the outcome.
