Katholischer US-Supreme Court schützt religiöse Gruppierungen vor den Notwendigkeiten einer Geburtenkontrolle 

Supreme Court sheilds nonprofit religious groups from birth control requirement | The Columbus Dispatch.

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court shielded the Little Sisters of the Poor and other nonprofit religious groups from complying, for now, with the Obama administration’s rule that they provide free contraceptives in the health insurance they offer employees.

The justices issued a one-paragraph order yesterday that keeps in place a temporary injunction handed down by Justice Sonia Sotomayor on Dec. 31.

The Little Sisters of the Poor and other Catholic charities objected to the so-called “ contraceptive mandate” — a provision of the Affordable Care Act — on religious grounds. Their lawyers said they feared “draconian fines” if they failed to comply with the new rule, which took effect on Jan. 1.

Yesterday’s order says that if Little Sisters and the other nonprofit groups that filed suit inform the secretary of health and human services in writing that they have religious objections to providing coverage for contraceptive services, the government may not enforce the provision until the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver rules on their legal challenge.

Catholic leaders say the rule violates their religious freedom because they believe contraceptives are immoral.
