This amicus brief was written to challenge the constitutionality of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act where private companies sued the Secretary of Health and Human Services, claiming that the Affordable Care Act’s provision requiring private employers to provide abortion-inducing drugs violated First Amendment religious freedom rights. Issues include whether RFRA violates the Separation of Powers; whether RFRA violates Article V; whether RFRA is a valid exercise of Congressional power; and whether RFRA violates the Establishment Clause. The final opinion is Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., 573 U.S. 682 (2014).
