Some not happy about Obamacare mandate

The Obama Administration proposed its latest ideas on mandatory contraceptive coverage, but one local East Texas University says it's not enough.

The law, which would require most employers to provide access to free contraceptive coverage received heavy fire back in October of last year which resulted in 45 different lawsuits being filed by religious organizations across America.

The white house stepped in and proposed a new law last Friday, but the law still lacked indication of allowing a religious opt-out.

Officials at East Texas Baptist University say although some of the laws placed in Obamacare they agree with, there are some that goes against their religious beliefs.

"We believe life begins at contraception, and we don't provide those types of drugs to our employees currently, and don't want to and don't intend to provide them in the future," said President Dub Oliver.

The overall mandate will take effect for religious nonprofits in August, but with the cases that could potentially reach the Supreme Court, that date could very well be postponed.
