On Wednesday, the Little Sisters of the Poor's case was heard in the Supreme Court; the court appeared divided; it appeared that Kennedy will split the vote.

"The Supreme Court split during a tense oral argument Wednesday that pitted religious liberty against women’s access to contraceptive coverage, raising the possibility that the now eight-member court would deadlock on a key component of the Affordable Care Act.

"The court’s four liberals seemed to agree that the Obama administration had offered an acceptable compromise for religiously affiliated organizations such as universities, hospitals and charities that want to be freed from the obligation to supply their female employees with no-cost contraceptive coverage, which they say violates their religious beliefs."--Robert Barnes, Washington Post
