The courts can bring clarity to controversial mandates about insurance and birth control.
The U.S. Supreme Court last week resuscitated Liberty University’s case against the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare. The Baptist school in Lynchburg will head to the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals seeking relief from two provisions of the law.
Count us among those who are glad this case will be heard. Don’t get us wrong. We think Liberty will lose and the provisions the school is challenging will remain important cornerstones of rational healthcare reform. But Liberty deserves its day in court, and this case — or another like it — could bring needed clarity and resolution to two requirements that continue to inflame passions and opposition.
