In a deeply divisive case pitting advocates of religious liberty against women’s right’s groups, the Supreme Court said today that two for profit corporations with sincerely held religious beliefs do not have to provide a full range of contraceptives at no cost to their employees pursuant to the Affordable Care Act.

The decision is a victory for the Green family that owns Hobby Lobby, an arts and crafts chain, and the Hahns who own Conestoga, a cabinet making company, who had challenged the so called contraceptive mandate saying it forced them to either violate their faith or pay ruinous fines. They object specifically to four of the drugs and devices at issue because they say they have the potential to destroy an embryo. The government defended the provision as an essential part of health care coverage for women.

What does this mean for future cases? Is this the beginning of a litany of lawsuits and a denial of coverage for women? Does religious freedom overrule a woman's right to self determination? The implications of this ruling may be far  reaching and have a lasting impact on our way of life as Americans. Join us and special guests as we discuss this from all angles.
