SOUTH PLAINFIELD - The owners of the craft store Hobby Lobby will argue Tuesday in front of the U.S. Supreme Court that the Affordable Care Act violates their constitutional religious rights.
      
The Green family, which owns the chain of stores, says the law violates their religious beliefs and does not want to cover contraceptives that work after an egg is fertilized. 
      
Customers of the store say they don't necessarily agree with the Green family but that it won't keep them from shopping at Hobby Lobby.

"My feeling is it's not about them, it's about their employees," says Pat Grazioso. "And I think everybody deserves health insurance, whether it's under Obama or something else.  And they shouldn't instill their beliefs into their employees."

The Obama administration argues a decision in favor of Hobby Lobby would prevent women from making their own decisions about their health.
