These are the days we live for! Several hundred pro-lifers gathered on the sidewalk in front of the Supreme Court today while oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood religious liberty cases were being heard. Snow fell and the wind blew, but that didn’t keep activists from standing up for the religious beliefs of all Americans.
These cases challenge the Obama Administration’s “contraceptive” mandate, requiring Christian businesses to violate their convictions and provide abortifacients to their employees. This fight was not about “access to contraceptives.” The Green family, owners of Hobby Lobby, only objects to 4 out of the 16 contraceptive drugs/devices mandated, and the government has conceded that these four methods may indeed prevent the implantation of a fertilized egg. This is a clear problem for those who believe that life begins at conception.
