US contraceptive mandate

Editor's note: The U.S. Supreme Court has ducked a major ruling on a challenge by religious employers to an Affordable Care Act mandate to provide female workers health insurance that covers birth control. Our earlier update stated the top court ruled in favor of the employers, but we've corrected the update to say the cases were sent back to lower courts for further proceedings. The justices ruled unanimously to send the cases back to federal appeals courts, where all but one of four courts upheld the mandate, according to USA Today. - Rebecca
