Obama Compromises with Christian Organizations

President Barack Obama loosened the restrictions around the contraceptive mandate that required employers to provide morning-after pills and abortifacients to their employees. The original mandate allowed non-profits such as churches to opt out but left regular businesses like Hobby Lobby—which is owned by a Christian family—feeling that their religious liberties were being violated. Under the new ruling, their insurer will be the one who pays for the services, meaning the companies themselves won’t actually have to pay for any services that violate their consciences.
