Cathi Herrod was on Faith Talk 1360’s Koinonia with Tom Brown to discuss the Hobby Lobby Stores and Conestoga Wood Specialties win, where the United States Supreme Court said that under the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act, closely held private businesses cannot be forced to pay for abortion-causing drugs in their insurance plans. In Conestoga Wood Specialties v. Burwell and Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, the U.S. Supreme Court affirmed religious freedom and the importance that every American should be free to live and work according to their faith. Cathi emphasizes the important distinction that Hobby Lobby did not want to provide abortion-causing drugs to their employees, but were willing to offer 16 out of 20 so-called contraceptives.
