WASHINGTON (AP) - The Obama administration and its opponents are renewing the Supreme Court battle over President Barack Obama's health care law.
This time, it's a case that pits the religious rights of employers against the rights of women to the birth control of their choice.
Two years ago, the entire law survived the justices' review by a single vote.
Now the court is hearing arguments Tuesday in a religion-based challenge from family-owned companies that object to covering certain contraceptives in their health plans as part of the law's preventive care requirement.
Health plans must offer a range of services at no charge beyond employees' insurance premiums. That includes all forms of birth control for women that have been approved by federal regulators.
