Christian Publisher Won't Have to Fund Employees' Contraception

A Christian publishing house will not have to pay for its employees to use emergency contraception, as required by health care reform, a federal judge ruled.

Tyndale House Publishers, a company that prints Bibles and other religious literature, filed suit in October, challenging a provision in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that requires employers to pay for employees' emergency contraception.

The company and its founder, Kenneth Taylor, claims that the "mandate" violates their religious beliefs, and subjects them to heavy fines and penalties if they do not comply.
