Rev. Rob Schenck, President of Faith and Action in the Nation’s Capitol stands with Priests for Life in our lawsuit against the HHS Mandate of the President Obama administration. On May 8, 2014, while oral arguments were heard in the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit, the second most influential Court in the United States, there was a Rally for Religious Freedom on its steps in support of religious non-profits.
Ours was the first of the religious non-profit cases to have oral arguments heard on its merits at the appellate level. Priests for Life Attorney Robert Muise, Co-Founder and Chief Counsel of the American Freedom Law Center stated, “This case with Priests for Life is the lead case for the non-profit religious organizations challenging the mandate similar to how Hobby Lobby is the lead case for the for-profit companies challenging the HHS mandate.”

Now, our case is scheduled to be heard at the Supreme Court in Washington, DC on March 23, 2016.
