Vocal Point-Stephanie Taub

Topic: Religious Liberty

In November 2019, for my weekly column, I wrote this: “Right now a group of innocent nuns is in the Left’s crosshairs—again. Why? Because the Little Sisters of the Poor do not believe in contraceptives and cannot in good faith and conscience abide by the HHS mandates—left over from the Obama administration—to force them to provide coverage for them.” The Supreme Court has agreed once again to hear their case. At a press conference during the first go around, the Little Sisters of the Poor declared: “The government forces us to either violate our conscience or to take millions of dollars that we raise by begging for care of the elderly poor and instead pay fines to the IRS.” First Liberty Institute has written a friend of court brief on behalf of the Little Sisters, and they applaud the fact that the high court has agreed to take the case (as of 1/17/20). Stephanie Taub, senior counsel for First Liberty, says, “The Supreme Court of the United States needs to protect once and for all the Little Sisters of the Poor and people of all faiths from government-forced violations of their religious beliefs.” Stephanie Taub joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss what’s at stake in this case. www.firstliberty.org
