In a 5 to 4 decision, the high court ruled that closely held corporations can be granted this religious exemption.

 

Legal expert Bruce mcCain warned Lars Larson, this is a narrow decision.

 

"This decision is limited to closely held corporations and Hobby Lobby is a national chain of 15 thosuand employees, but it's not publicly traded.  So I want your listeners to know this is not a decision that means employers no longer have to offer contraception.  That's not what this is about."

 

This decision is a victory for the Green family that owns Hobby Lobby.

 

They argued that the Affordable Care Act requirement that they provide coverage for contraceptives like the "morning after pill" is equal to abortion -- and is against their religious rights.
