The Supreme Court Accepted Appeal to Review ACA

Today the Supreme Court accepted an appeal to review the Affordable Care Act (ACA).  In the coming months, they will examine implementation of President Obama’s health care reform law also known as “Obamacare”.  Justices agreed to take a special look at the provision of the law requiring employers to provide insurance coverage that covers birth control and other reproductive health services, including the controversial “Plan-B” pill, to its employees.

Numerous corporations, organizations, and businesses have sued the government over the mandate, stating it violates their religious beliefs.  Oklahoma Wesleyan University joined The Catholic Church and other Christian organizations like Hobby Lobby in challenging the government over the issue. 

“The first amendment guarantees that the government cannot establish or prohibit the free expression of religion in the United States. Surely we all understand that our views on sexual morality and the use of contraception are informed by our religion. Surely we all agree that the government has no place and no authority in our bedrooms or our sanctuaries,” said Dr. Everett Piper, OKWU President.

The Supreme Court will begin holding oral arguments over the issue in March, most likely, with an expected ruling in June.

    added- checkbox and from now on each time a comment is added I

    There has to be a means you can remove me from that service?

    Many thanks!

    Hi, There’s no doubt that your web site could possibly be having web browser compatibility problems.
    When I look at your site in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in Internet
    Explorer, it has some overlapping issues. I merely wanted
    to give you a quick heads up! Besides that, wonderful site!

    Hello there! Quick question that’s entirely off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?

    My site looks weird when viewing from my iphone.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to fix this issue.
    If you have any recommendations, please share.
    Thank you!
