When the Supreme Court next year decides whether the Obama administration can force for-profit companies to insure birth control, the punditry around abortion or the "war on women" will be overshadowed by legal precedent and acts by Congress that weigh religious liberty against government mandates, legal scholars say.
The Supreme Court has agreed to referee another dispute over President Barack Obama's health care law, whether businesses can use religious objections to escape a requirement to cover birth control for employees.
"Whereas some of the religious groups have focused so intently on what they are being 'forced' to do and what the impact is on them, this perspective highlights the fact that in a pluralistic society, everyone has to give up something."
"I do think it is interesting in the sense that it focuses on inclusiveness," said Holly Lynch, a health care law and bioethics researcher at Harvard Law School.
