DENVER — Christian radio broadcaster James Dobson has won a temporary injunction preventing the federal government from requiring his ministry to include the morning-after pill and other emergency contraception in its health insurance.

A federal judge in Denver issued the injunction Thursday.

Dobson sued in December, saying the Affordable Care Act mandate to provide the contraception violates the religious beliefs of his Colorado Springs-based ministry, called Family Talk.

The U.S. Supreme Court is considering similar challenges from Hobby Lobby and other employers.

Dobson is founder and president of Family Talk, which has a nationally syndicated radio show, newsletter and website. The lawsuit says the ministry has 28 full-time employees.

He's best known as founder of the conservative Focus on the Family ministry. He left that group and launched Family Talk in 2010.
