Topic: The recent controversy over the HHS “Preventive Services Mandate” has surfaced serious questions about religious freedom and conscience protection. Should government force employers and insurance providers to include contraceptives and abortifacients in health insurance plans? When, if ever, should government accommodate conscientious objections to paying for these drugs and devices? What limits do legal protections of religious liberty (including the First Amendment) impose on government power in this area?
