Jerry Boykin will be joined by Janet Parshall , radio host for Moody Radio, and Dr. Richard Land , president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), to discuss the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services mandate that employers cover abortion-causing drugs, sterilizations and contraceptives in their health insurance plans, even if those employers have religious convictions against such coverage. 


Rep. Diane Black (R-TN) will introduce the Health Care Conscience Rights Act (HCCRA) today to protect the religious liberties of anyone who purchases health insurance, including non-profits, businesses and individuals, as well as providing greater protections for health care workers who refuse to participate in abortion.
