Supreme Court Hearing Gives Hobby Lobby Reason to Hope HHS Mandate Will be Stopped
The questions from members of the Supreme Court and the tenor of the oral arguments today in the Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood cases against the HHS mandate give observers reason to hope the high court will overturn the controversial Obamacare provision.
In court today former United States Solicitor General Paul Clement argued on behalf of Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood, two family businesses whose cases were consolidated before the court. Clement argued that Hobby Lobby and Conestoga are protected under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, and that nothing in the law excludes these family businesses and their owners from religious freedom protections. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/03/25/supreme-court-hearing-gives-hobby-lobby-reason-to-hope-hhs-mandate-will-be-stopped/

Hundreds of pro-life activists gathered at the Supreme Court today to rally in support of Hobby Lobby, Conestoga Wood, and the religious freedom of companies and groups that do not want to be forced to pay for abortion-causing drugs in their employee health care plans.
Right now, our team is outside of the Supreme Court preparing for our prayer vigil and rally today. And its already a zoo out there. Planned Parenthood and others in the abortion lobby are out in full force for todays hearing in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties v.

Three Reasons Why the Supreme Court Should Uphold Hobby Lobbys Religious Freedom
In the run-up to the Hobby Lobby oral arguments at the Supreme Court, where the chain store is challenging the Obama administrations abortion-pill mandate, some on the left have been aghast at the very idea that a corporation would assert a right to religious freedom.
Sure, they argue, individuals have rights, but how can a corporation? http://www.lifenews.com/2014/03/25/three-reasons-why-the-supreme-court-should-uphold-hobby-lobbys-religious-freedom/
University Wont Discipline Feminist Studies Professor Charged With Assaulting Pro-Lifers
On March 4, 2014, a group of peaceful activists were battered and had their property stolen by a radical UC Santa Barbara Professor whose area of educational expertise is pornography. The DA has filed misdemeanor charges against Professor Mireille Miller-Young.
Still, the University has remained silent. No discipline has been announced, not even an acknowledgment of the hateful actions and intolerance of the professor and students. Why is the University silent? http://www.lifenews.com/2014/03/25/university-wont-discipline-feminist-studies-professor-charged-with-assaulting-pro-lifers/
