Supreme Court limits birth-control rule

A divided Supreme Court on Monday extended religious-freedom protections to certain for-profit corporations, exempting them from providing birth-control services that are required under the 2010 health care law. In the Charlotte area, the Catholic owner of a book publishing company that had also filed suit to block the mandate led some employees in a noon prayer of thanksgiving for the high court’s decision.
