  The U.S.Supreme Court has reached a decision in the Hobby Lobby case. In a 5-to-4 decision, the court ruled that some for-profit corporations, like Hobby Lobby, have religious rights. Monday's ruling means closely-held companies with religious objections cannot be forced to offer certain types of birth control coverage under President Obama's health care law. The high court considered appeals from Hobby Lobby and a Pennsylvania cabinet-maker. Both companies argued the mandate went against their religious beliefs and opposition to abortion. The decision comes two years after justices narrowly upheld the Affordable Care Act. Opponents fear the decision in favor of Hobby Lobby could lead to other healthcare challenges on religious grounds.
