tags: abortifacents, Affordable Care Act, conscience protection, contraception, HHS mandate, religious freedom

tags: abortion law, Casey v. Planned Parenthood, conscience protection, healthcare law, Roe v. Wade
As long as current abortion law is on the books as legalized in the Roe v. Wade decision, it may be providing some new strength to the legal case for conscience protection in health care. Really.
