James Dobson wins Obamacare reprieve

Christian radio broadcaster James Dobson won a temporary injunction against Obamacare contraceptive mandate on Thursday.

Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys filed a federal lawsuit in December against the Obama administration on behalf of Dr. James Dobson and his “Family Talk” radio show.

The lawsuit challenges the legality and constitutionality of the mandate, which requires religious employers to provide insurance coverage for abortifacients, sterilization, and contraception to employees regardless of religious or moral objections.

The lawsuit, Dobson v. Sebelius, filed with the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado, argued that the mandate violates the Religious Freedom Restoration Act as well as the First and Fifth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution.
