WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A divided Supreme Court has allowed, at least for now, an evangelical college in Illinois that objects to paying for contraceptives in its health plan to avoid filing out a government document that the college says would violate its religious belief.

The justices said that Wheaton College does not have to fill out the contest form while its case is on appeal.

Instead, they can write the Department of Health and Human Services declaring that it is a religious non-profit organization and making its objection to emergency contraceptive.

The college does not provide coverage for birth control.
