The case heard Tuesday by the U.S. Supreme Court to determine whether for-profit corporations can deny contraception coverage mandated by the Affordable Care Act has pitted religious rights advocates against champions of women's rights.

Gabriel Malor, a lawyer and blogger at Ace of Spade HQ, says it's really a one-sided issue.

"It's not about women's rights. What it is about is about forcing other people to pay for your contraception, and that's a whole different ballgame," Malor told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

The case is being led by Hobby Lobby and was heard before the Supreme Court on Tuesday.

Malor said Wednesday that the idea corporations can't exercise religious beliefs is unfair because the only thing distinguishing for-profit corporations from non-profits is that they make a profit.

"This is a religious freedom case. These companies simply do not want to be forced to violate their religious conscience, and they shouldn't have to, by the way, they should not have to give up their religion to have to operate in public, that's absurd," Malor said.

Malor said the justices debated the potentially different obligations between small, family-owned businesses and large corporations.

"It's absurd, like where is that line drawn?" he asked. "It's not drawn in law, it's not drawn in statute, literally they are making it up because they have nothing else to hang their hat on."
