It was my time as a student at Wheaton College that helped me decide to become a lawyer. I never imagined that I’d have to spend six years of my legal career defending Wheaton’s right to exist.
Thankfully, that six-year fight came to an end last week.
The struggle began in 2011 when the Obama administration tried to use the Affordable Care Act to force religious organizations to pay for drugs and services that violated their religious beliefs.
Through an unconstitutional mandate, the government tried nine different ways to achieve the same goal: forcing religious schools, orders, nonprofits, and businesses to give up their religious beliefs as the price of admission to life in the public square.
