WASHINGTON, D.C. - When it comes to whether employers should provide birth control for employees, the Supreme Court appears to be divided.
The controversy is surrounding religious beliefs and if they can spare employers from a section of the new healthcare law requiring birth control coverage for no extra charge. Some businesses claim that certain methods of birth control directly violate their beliefs.
WMDT spoke with Delmarva residents to hear their views on the matter.
"I really think they should provide services for those who are employed in organizations for services such as birth control," said Renne Smith of Salisbury, Md.
"I don't think [businesses] should have to if they don't want to," said Melanie Rivers of Pittsville, Md.
Ruling in favor of the businesses may not be so easy. The Obama Administration, along with its supporters, say this decision could undermine laws affecting immunizations, social security and minimum wage.
