Is "The Mandate" a Goner?

Well, perhaps, at least in this opinion.

After the Hobby Lobby decision, a number of people pointed to a reference to the so-called “accommodation” for religious-oriented organizations in the HHS contraception mandate to conclude that the Supreme Court’s decision would be limited to the for-profit sector, and only to certain methods of contraception. A series of orders the next day showed the latter was not true, and a decision late yesterday suggests the former isn’t, either. 

The author also states that SCOTUS did not accept that baby-killing or other artificial contraception was a "compelling national interest", either, in the Hobby Lobby case.
