The Supreme Court session starts in October, and some hot button issues are likely to be heard this term. The hottest may be corporate control of contraception. Obamacare mandates that employer health plans cover birth control without co-payments. Corporations like Hobby Lobby and Eden Foods hate the rule so much that they’ve filed lawsuits to stop it. They say they don’t believe in birth control, and covering it for female workers violates their religious freedom. What about a female employee's right not to be forced to conform to dictates by the boss’s faith?
