      SCOTUS to hear ACA birth control case

      Another case related to the president's health care law goes before the U.S.{}Supreme Court Tuesday.

      At issue is whether the religious rights of employers trump the rights of women to have birth control of their choice.{} Certain family-owned companies, such as Hobby Lobby, object to covering some contraceptives as part of the law's preventive care requirement.{}

      The administration argues that if the companies win, women would be prevented from making decisions about birth control based on what's best for their health.{} It added that individuals have religious rights, but the family-owned corporations do not.
