Religious Freedom vs. Contraception Coverage
The Affordable Care Act requires that employers provide health care to employees - including contraception at no cost. This is a problem for a number of business owners for religious reasons and they are taking their fight to the U.S. Supreme Court.

We talk with ACLU of Illinois Executive Director Colleen Connell and Peter Breen, Vice President and Senior Counsel of the Thomas More Society, about the arguments and future implications.
