INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ A federal court has barred the government from enforcing the birth control mandate in President Barack Obama's health care overhaul against an Indiana company that raised religious objections.
The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago voted 2-1 to grant a temporary injunction preventing the government from fining Madison-based Grote Industries $100 a day for violating the Affordable Care Act. Tuesday's decision reversed a lower court ruling.
The Grote family say their Catholic beliefs will not allow them to offer contraception to their employees. Many U.S. business owners are filing similar lawsuits, claiming a violation of their religious beliefs. The lawsuits are yielding conflicting rulings in appeals courts around the country.
Judge Ilana Diamond Rovner dissented, saying the religious beliefs were the Grotes', not the company's.
