Big Brother versus the Little Sisters in the Supreme Court
On Friday, Nov. 6, the U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will review Little Sisters of the Poor v. Burwell, Secretary of HHS, one of seven similar cases it will hear in March and decide by the end of June. All these cases challenge the adequacy of Obamacare’s accommodation for religious organizations — like the Sisters — that provide healthcare or education but who have religiously-based conscientious objections to the provision of coverage for contraceptives, abortion and sterilization that HHS regulations mandate.
