(Washington, DC) -- The U.S.Supreme Court is giving an order of nuns a partial victory in their fight against Obamacare. The court said the federal government may not enforce the part of the healthcare law that requires employers to provide contraception insurance while the litigation continues. The court did say however, that the groups must notify the Department of Health and Human Services in writing that they object to the contraception mandate. Baltimore-based Little Sisters of the Poor and Christian Brothers Services, an Illinois group that administers healthcare plans for Catholic groups, are fighting the mandate on grounds in violates their religious beliefs.
