Please join ACS for a panel discussion of the Supreme Court's recent decision in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. The Court exempted under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act closely held for-profit corporations from the federal mandate that health insurance include coverage for contraception. The panel will discuss the practical impact of the ruling on workers in California and nationally, the response of the administration and the outlook for the many other birth control cases headed for the Court. We will also discuss the implications of the decision for conflicts between religious freedom and other rights, such as LGBT equality and access to abortion.
