Hundreds of pro-life activists gathered at the Supreme Court today to rally in support of Hobby Lobby, Conestoga Wood, and the religious freedom of companies and groups that do not want to be forced to pay for abortion-causing drugs in their employee health care plans.

“Right now, our team is outside of the Supreme Court preparing for our prayer vigil and rally today. And it’s already a zoo out there. Planned Parenthood and others in the abortion lobby are out in full force for today’s hearing in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties v. Sebelius – the first two cases on the HHS Mandate to reach the high court,” Kristan Hawkins of Student for Life told LifeNews.

“Even though the forecast is calling for snow and a dramatic drop in temperatures, our movement has to be at the Supreme Court today because the fate of our nation is being decided. In only a couple of months, we will learn how the Supreme Court justices rule in these cases and they will literally determine whether or not our government can force employers of faith and conscience to pay for abortion-inducing, cancer-causing drugs for their employees…whether or not Americans have a fundamental right to religious liberty. They will determine what path our nation follows,” she said.
