This case is very important and could determine the limits of religious freedom in the United States.

Two cases before the Supreme Court are not about limiting a woman’s freedom to buy birth control, as they have been widely mischaracterized, but about challenging the government’s power to force Americans to violate their religious beliefs, a Heritage Foundation analyst said in an interview with The Foundry.
Sarah Torre, a policy analyst in Heritage’s DeVos Center for Religion and Civil Society, said Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties, two businesses owned by religious families, see themselves as fighting for a fundamental freedom in the cases to be argued Tuesday.
The families contend that an Obamacare mandate by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) compels them to pay hefty per-employee fines or violate their faith by providing abortion-inducing drugs and devices in employee health plans, Torre said in the on-camera interview with Genevieve Wood, senior contributor to The Foundry.
An ominous threat to the cherished American concept of religious liberty, not the easy availability of affordable contraception, is why the HHS mandate has come before the Supreme Court.
