The Supreme Court has yet to hear arguments on the Little Sisters of the Poor's case regarding being forced to provide contraception under ObamaCare. However, Justice Scalia's death may have just sunk their cause. Unless at least one liberal Justice votes to side with the sisters, at the very least, there would be a split-decision along party lines. In that case, their lower court loss before the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals would stand. Thus, it would be the first time in the history of the U.S. that the high court would deny someone their religious rights under our Constitution with no possible redress unless ObamaCare is repealed.
And, don't think that other decisions by the court won't result in liberal wins for the very same reason. It is unbelievably strange that Scalia -- a devout Catholic -- would have possibly hurt the Little Sisters -- a Catholic charitable organization -- through his own death.

A devout Italian Catholic and a Ronald Reagan appointee, Scalia was one of the most conservative members of the bench, and he was known not just for his legal mind, but for his Catholic core: http://time.com/4220768/antonin-scalia-dead-catholic-legacy/
