Recent Court Cases Go Both Ways. Five recent decisions on the HHS mandate involve Christian for-profit companies. Each of these companies objected to providing contraceptives and sterilization, abortifacients, or both on religious grounds, and filed a lawsuit to avoid having to do so. Three decisions granted a preliminary injunction to plaintiffs so they would not have to provide the contraceptive coverage during the case. Two decisions went against the companies, one dismissing its claim, and one denying the preliminary injunction.
