Injunction in Dordt v. Sebelius

US district court judge Mark Bennett has issued an injunction in the case Dordt v. Sebelius.  The federal government is attempting to force Dordt College, a Christian college northwestern Iowa and other Christian colleges to pay for types of birth control that can cause abortion.  This is despite the fact that the "Affordable Care Act" contains an exception for religious institutions.  The feds have interpreted that as covering only churches, and not religious colleges.

The injunction essentially delays the case until the Supreme Court rules on the Hobby Lobby case, in which a Christian business has similar objections to Obamacare.
