The Little Sisters of the Poor who run a Home for the Aged in Denver, requested an emergency stay of the HHS mandate, forcing religious organizations to pay for birth control / sterilization / abortion. After a federal appeals court failed to respond, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor decided late on New Years Eve to block this requirement of Obamacare. Government officials have until 10am Friday morning to respond.
Sotomayor’s decision excuses the religious organizations from being forced to comply with the birth control / abortion / sterilization mandate while the Supreme Court addresses the issue.
