Supreme Court sends contraceptives case back to the lower courts

Us Supreme Court's  opinion released Monday, vacated the judgments of the high-profile case, Zubik v. Burwell, and sent it back to lower courts. The justices unanimously instructed both parties to find a tweak to the contraceptive mandate to eliminate any faith-based concerns “while still ensuring that the affected women receive contraceptive coverage seamlessly.”This year’s case on the contraception mandate comes two years after the Supreme Court’s major ruling in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, which restricted the federal government’s power to require birth control coverage in healthcare plans run by religiously affiliated companies.
