Analyzing the Obamacare Ruling: How Should Pro-Lifers Respond?

National   |   Josh Brahm   |   Jul 4, 2012   |   11:41AM   |   Washington, DC

Notre Dame law student and former Life Report guest John Gerardi joins Jonathan Keller and me in the studio to discuss the Supreme Court’s “Obamacare” decision. Josh opens the show by focusing on how this legislation promotes abortion and tramples on religious liberty. This includes a brief explanation of why “ella” should definitively be considered an abortifacient, and not merely a contraceptive. Josh also discourages people from making baseless claims about Chief Justice Roberts’ intelligence or intentions.

Afterwards, John Gerardi gives a careful analysis of the decision, including what constitutional issues were examined.  The show ends with a discussion of what pro-lifers can do to fix things.

After this episode finished shooting, we stayed on the air for over an hour continuing the discussion and responding to questions from our live stream audience. We will be releasing that footage in sections over the next week or two, so keep checking for regular updates, or subscribe to our RSS feed.
