The Little Sisters of the Poor win a unanimous punt from the Supreme Court, which sent the case back to the lower courts to fix Obamacare to fit with the Sisters' requirements of conscience.
"The Supreme Court issued a unanimous opinion today in the case involving the Little Sisters of the Poor, which have been fighting to not be forced to pay for abortion-causing drugs for their employees.
"The Little Sisters of the Poor are asking the nation’s highest court to ensure they do not have to comply with Obamacare’s abortion mandate. The mandate compels religious groups to pay for birth control and drugs that may cause abortions.
"Without relief, the Little Sisters would face millions of dollars in IRS fines because they cannot comply with the government’s mandate that they give their employees free access to contraception, sterilization, and abortion-inducing drugs. Today’s decision removes all of those threats of possible fines.
"'The Court’s decision is a win for the Little Sisters and other groups who needed relief from draconian government fines,' the Becket Fund, the Little Sisters’ attorneys, told LifeNews."--Steve Ertelt, LifeNews.com
