Later in the week, the Senate is expected to vote on a bill which would repeal the Obama Administration's health care regulation requiring birth control coverage. This follows a case in Tacoma, Washington where a federal judge ruled a law which requires pharmacies to offer emergency contraceptives to be unconstitutional. The plaintiff in the case, Kevin Storman, a store owner, felt his religious freedom was violated by the legislation. 

Gloria Feldt is the former president of Planned Parenthood and author of “No Excuses: 9 Ways Women Can Change How We Think About Power.” Eric Kniffin is legal counsel at the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty who helped represent the plaintiffs in Storeman’s v. Selecky.
