Eternal Word Television Network also filed suit over the health care law

Posted: Updated:
Some companies with religious objections, like Hobby Lobby, cannot be forced to offer certain types of birth control coverage under President Obama’s health care law.

The U.S. Supreme court ruled Monday that some for-profit corporations have religious rights.  The high court considered appeals from the arts-and-crafts giant and a Pennsylvania cabinet maker.  Both companies argued the mandate went against their religious beliefs and opposition to abortion.

The decision came two years after justices narrowly upheld the affordable care act.

The world's biggest religious TV network, EWTN which based in Irondale, is closely studying today's Hobby Lobby ruling.

Eternal Word Television Network also filed suit over the health care law.  Following the U.S. Supreme court ruling, the network got word that an appeals court had granted it a temporary injunction.

EWTN is appealing a federal judge's decision to dismiss its lawsuit over the required coverage of contraceptives and abortions. EWTN’s chairman and chief executive officer said the hobby lobby case is significant but it doesn't necessarily solidify anything for the network's case.
