The Supreme Court says corporations can hold religious objections that allow them to opt out of the new health law requiring contraceptive coverage for women. 

Today's 5-4 decision is the first time that the high court has ruled that profit-seeking businesses can hold religious views under federal law. 

The Obama administration must now search for a different way of providing free contraception to women who are covered under objecting companies' health insurance plans.
