Religious Freedom and Healthcare Reform

The Health and Human Services contraception mandate has revived the debate about the Obama administration's health care reform and its implications for religious freedom. The Berkley Center's Religious Freedom Project convened several leading experts to explore the controversy from different legal, theological, and policy perspectives. Key questions that were addressed include: the role of religious freedom and conscience exemptions in American law, the US Catholic Bishops' criticisms of the health reform law and HHS mandate, and the prospects for a resolution of the controversy. An RFP publication on the panel discussion, including a full transcript, can be found here.
