The two lawyer had another had another case challenging the Affordable Care Act, but the rule ruled in favor of the Obama administration with a vote of 5 to 4 vote (Liptak). Clement argue that the Affordable Care Act requires a majority of employers to provide female employees with comprehensive cover for varieties of contraception methods available in the market. However, under the Affordable Health Act, small employers and religious employers are exempted from covering their employees on contraception (U.S Department of Health and Human Services). Moreover, religious affiliated organizations or group do not need provide their workers with contraceptive cover.
The plaintiff told the bench that including insurance coverage for contraceptives promotes equality in the health care provision and ensure that women has access to quality birth control methods. Moreover, offering comprehensive contraceptive insurance ensure that women would be able to prepare for their family until when they are ready to have children (Liptak).
