NEW YORK (AP) — Lawsuits over the birth control rule in the federal health care overhaul seem headed to the Supreme Court.
The provision of President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act requires employers to provide health insurance that covers contraception.
Dozens of lawsuits have been filed by faith-affiliated charities, hospitals and universities. They say the mandate forces them to violate their religious beliefs. For-profit business owners are also suing over the religious freedom issue.
