WASHINGTON (AP) — Demonstrators on both sides of the issue are gathered outside the Supreme Court — where justices are hearing arguments today on whether corporations have religious rights that exempt them from part of the new health care law.

At issue is a provision requiring companies to provide coverage of birth control for employees at no extra charge. The case involves family-owned companies that object to covering certain methods of birth control that they say violates their religious beliefs.

The Obama administration and its supporters say a court ruling in favor of the businesses could also undermine laws governing immunizations, Social Security taxes and minimum wages.

Company supporters outside the court today were chanting, “My faith, my business.”
