"Justice Alito framed the ruling as 'very specific' to the case before the court, and argued that no women would be burdened with the costs of contraceptives because their employers objected.

[HHS] 'has provided no reason why the same system cannot be made available when the owners of for-profit corporations have similar religious objections,' Justice Alito wrote. He was joined by Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Antonin Scalia, Anthony Kennedy and Clarence Thomas."
