Four Christian Universities in Oklahoma lost a religious freedom case Tuesday in the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.  A district court temporarily stopped enforcement of the Obama administration's abortion-pill mandate after the universities objected to it in 2013.

The appeals court overturned that ruling Tuesday saying it's the insurance companies that provide the contraception not the universities.

The attorneys representing Southern Nazarene, Oklahoma Wesleyan, Oklahoma Baptist and Mid-America Christian Universities called the ruling wrong saying, "the government should not force religious organizations to be involved in providing abortion pills to their employees and students."
