As we try to digest the impact of this Hobby Lobby ruling on future religious freedom claims and on society as a whole, we have to recognize the success that well-funded and well-organized far-right legal groups have had in redefining religious liberty in our courts. However, there is hope. Welton is joined this week by Katherine Franke, the Director of the Columbia Law School Center for Gender and Sexuality Law Public Rights/Private Conscious Project, a group that hopes to develop a coherent case for true religious liberty and church-state separation in the area of reproductive rights in order to fight this right-wing legal contingency. Katherine discusses the impact she would like the project to have on the current rhetoric around women’s and religious rights and how listeners can help support her important work.
