The Washington Times is reporting that a federal judge Friday blocked the Obamacare mandate that would require a Christian publishing company to offer health insurance that covers contraceptives:
Judge Reggie B. Walton said the Obama administration’s contraceptive coverage mandate puts companies such as Illinois-based Tyndale House Publishers in an “untenable position” — either violate their beliefs, or face major penalties for failing to comply.
Tyndale House Publishers Inc., a Christian publishing company, said it objects to several types of contraceptives the Health and Human Services Department requires be covered.
Fans of Obamacare aren’t pleased to learn that the fight over contraceptive coverage, which somehow became central to the presidential campaign in its final weeks, isn’t quite over yet.
