This week, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) heard two very important religious liberty cases – Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties v. Sebelius. The Green family, owners of Hobby Lobby, and the Hahn family, owners of Conestoga Wood Specialties, are taking a stand against the HHS mandate, a controversial portion of the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, that forces employers to provide abortion-inducing drugs and contraceptives to their employees against their firmly held religious convictions. Both companies face fines of up to $100 per day per employee if the mandate is upheld.
The SCOTUS decision on these cases is not expected until at least June. Family Research Council provides a summary of the SCOTUS hearings HERE.
