Just hours after ruling that closely-held private companies needn't pay for contraceptive services on religious grounds, the U.S. Supreme Court granted a motion exempting Wheaton College from punitive fees while it fights for a similar exemption.  While the court ruling applied to private companies, religious non-profit institutions like Wheaton College have been living with a modified regulation, allowing them to seek to have the government pay for contraceptive services they object to funding for their employees. 

Wheaton, along with many other religious institutions want the same kind of exemption granted in the Hobby Lobby case.
