The Supreme Court decision in the Hobby Lobby case doesn't affect the birth control methods that are most commonly used.
It doesn't affect:
- Most birth control pills
It does affect:
- Plan B "morning-after pill"
- Ella "morning-after pill"
- Hormonal intrauterine devices (IUDs)
- Copper IUDs
The companies in the case and their supporters object to intrauterine devices (IUDs) and morning-after pills, saying they cause abortions by blocking a fertilized egg from implanting in the uterus. Groups that lobby for reproductive rights contend the drugs and devices prevent fertilization from occurring, which can lead to unwanted pregnancies and surgical abortions.
