PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – On Talk Radio 1210 WPHT, Chris Stigall spoke with Adele Keim from the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty who represented Hobby Lobby in their case against the federal government’s mandate that they provide certain types of birth control they object to for their employees.
Keim said the ruling has broader implications that just contraceptive coverage.
“It was a great day for religious freedom. Religious freedom isn’t just protected in the United States in our Bill of Rights; it’s protected in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It’s one of the fundamental rights that we all have as human beings. What the court said yesterday was you don’t lose your fundamental human rights just because you decided to open a family business in the seventies and incorporate it to protect your assets. That’s a protection for all of us,” she commented.
