SUPREME COURT HEARS CASES ON CONSCIENCE OBJECTIONS TO OBAMACARE THIS TUESDAY

by KEN KLUKOWSKI

On Tuesday, Mar. 25, the Supreme Court will hear its next cases on President Obama’s controversial signature law. These two cases involve whether it violates either federal law or the U.S. Constitution to compel Christian business owners to provide abortion-related drugs that can destroy human embryos after conception, which those owners regard as immorally destroying human life. The cases are Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties v. Sebelius. They are challenges to Obamacare’s HHS abortion/contraception mandate. 

Breitbart News has already reported extensively on the details of these cases.

Employers whose policies do not provide such coverage face a fine of $100 per employee, per day. (That means an annual penalty of $36,500 per employee.) This regulation from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is called Obamacare’s abortion mandate or contraception mandate.
