insurance and you have to cover contraceptives in that insurance. there are more than three dozen companies that say that violates their religious freedom and some of those cases have worked their way up to the u.s. supreme court. today the justices will sit down behind closed doors looking at all of the cases they may take for the rest of the term including some of these religious freedom cases involving the religious freedom restore ax act. should companies be required to provide this coverage if they object to birth control? should they be fined if they don't provide the coverage and should individual employees have to pay toward these premiums if they have individual objections. there are signs on both sides. at this point it's up to the justices to decide if they take one of these cases we could hear arguments in the spring and likely a decision as we often see with these high profile cases probably the end of june. >> you point out that doctors are arguing in favor of coverage
but also on the other side of this as well. correct? >> reporter: exactly. some have filed briefs in this case. the college of obgyns, preventing the fertilized egg through contraceptive doesn't interfere. on the other side you have pro life groups including medical groups, catholic medical association arguing the opposite and the way they see the arguments in the case. >> we know politics and religion a powerful combination. we'll keep our eyes on this one. thank you. >> on capitol hill, leading republican and democratic senators are working on legislation in case iran does not make good on its promise to roll back its nuclear program. the plan is reinstate full force sanctions and new one. iran backs out. the goal is have the bill ready for a vote on december 9 when the senate returns from the two-week recess. some of the americans held
