Ed Whelan talked about the Obama administration ruling on a provision of the 2010 health care law that requires church-affiliated employers to cover contraceptives and other preventive services in their health insurance plans. The regulation raises the question as to which institutions qualify as religious and can therefore be exempted. Mr. Whelans’s organization, the Ethics and Public Policy Center, which opposes the regulation, believes it violates constitutional religious freedom guarantees. As part of his argument, Mr. Whelan compared the provision to a hypothetical federal mandate that all schools participate in a national lunch program and further require that free pork be made available to all students. He also responded to viewer phone calls and electronic communications.

C-SPAN Radio’s Nancy Calo read news headlines at the end of the program. close
