A Small Victory...?

It's not much, but it seems that a federal appeals court reinstated two of the top legal challenges to the HHS mandate (more commonly referred to as "Obamacare".) This mandate requires religious employers to pay for drugs that may cause abortions.

The court also ordered the Obama administration to report back every 60 days until it carries out its promise to issue a new rule that protects employers' religious freedom. The Obama administration now has to rewrite the HHS mandate by March 2013.

It would appear that the Americans trust their Government about as much as we Brits trust ours... in other words, about as far as one can throw them with both hands tied behind their backs...

At least for now we have arms to defend ourselves against the onset of tyranny.
And yes, judges ruling against the government in the lower courts tend to want the government to actually carry out its order.
And for your readers, who mainly come from the UK< it's not just abortifacient drugs. It includes all contraceptives, sterilizations, and abortifacients.
