(Newser) – A divided Supreme Court today allowed, at least for now, an evangelical college in Illinois that objects to paying for contraceptives in its health plan to avoid filling out a government document that the college says would violate its religious beliefs. The justices said that Wheaton College does not have to fill out the contested form while its case is on appeal. Instead, it can write the Department of Health and Human Services declaring that it is a religious nonprofit organization and that it objects to emergency contraception. The college does provide coverage for other birth control.
