Federalist Society Teleforum Conference Call
The contraceptive mandate case is being argued in the U.S. Supreme Court. Hobby Lobby Stores’ owners have no moral or other objection to the use of 16 of 20 contraceptives required by the contraceptive mandate under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), but cite their deeply held religious beliefs in objecting to providing or paying for four others they see as possibly life-threatening. How will the Supreme Court rule? Does the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 (RFRA), allow Hobby Lobby a way around the ACA ‘s contraceptive mandate? Our experts will review the oral arguments and take questions from the audience in this Courthouse Steps Teleforum.
- Prof. Robert A. Destro, Professor of Law, and Director, Interdisciplinary Program in Law & Religion, The Catholic University of America Columbus School of Law
- Adele Keim, Counsel, The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty
Call begins at 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
