What is the fate of the Little Sisters of the Poor? Insights this week from a Becket Fund attorney

Little Sisters of the Poor
Last week the Becket Fund represented the Little Sistersof the Poor before the U. S. Supreme Court in the sisters’ effort to block the Obama Administration from forcing them to distribute birth control and abortion inducing drugs to their employees. If the court rules against them, the sisters would face crippling Obamacare fines that would force them out of their work helping the elderly and poor, regardless of faith or nationality.

Becket Fund counsel Stephanie Barclay will join Deacon Mike Manno and Gina Noll Tuesday to give our listeners a debriefing on how the arguments were received by the
Stephanie Barclay
Court. She’ll also discuss what will happen if the Court splits 4-4 on the Little Sisters’ appeal and what an adverse ruling will mean for the Little Sisters and for religious freedom in general.
Join Deacon Mike and Gina for a very topical discussion Tuesday at 9 a.m. on Iowa Catholic Radio, 1150 AM and 88.5 & 94.5 FM and streaming on The program will be re-broadcast Tuesday at 9 p.m.
