As challenges to the Obama administration’s contraception coverage mandate multiply, the courts seem to be recognizing unprecedented new faith-based claims of conscience in private business. This week we hear from Eric Rassbach, national litigation director for the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty. The Becket Fund has had a string of headline-making successes recently, including representing the winning side in the U.S. Supreme Court religious employer Hosana-Tabor case, which the Wall Street Journal called the “most important religious liberty case in a half century.” Rassbach discusses their win representing a pharmacy in Washington state regarding the right of a pharmacist to refuse to dispense Plan B drugs on the grounds of personal conscience and the broader implications of conscience clauses.
