140013 03/29/2014

This week the United States Supreme Court heard arguments in the Hobby Lobby case regarding Department of Health and Human Services requirements that abortifacient contraception be covered by healthcare plans provided by Christian businesses to their employees. Attorney Erin Mersino is the Thomas More Law Center (www.thomasmore.org) Senior Trial Counsel who attended arguments this week.

Then on to a spirited conversation with Benjamin Ryberg from the Lawfare Project (www.thelawfareproject.org) to see how well freedom of speech is doing in its battle with political correctness.
