US Supreme Court Rules in favor of Hobby Lobby

Cheyenne, WY (KGWN)- The Supreme Court decided on Monday that private corporations have religious rights and they are not required to pay certain types of contraceptives for their employees.

In a 5-4 decision, the decision came as a set back for President Obama's healthcare reform.

The law required corporations of a certain size to offer insurance benefits for birth control and other contraceptives. Some companies equated the use of a plan b, or morning after pill, to causing an abortion.
