Constitution Day lecture explores abortion, Affordable Care Act
Our nation is deeply divided on abortion, the Affordable Care Act, the proper limits of religious toleration, and the moral status of corporations. These divisions all surfaced in the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent Burwell v. Hobby Lobby decision, which limited abortifacient coverage under the ACA. The result was a political storm and widespread confusion about the meaning and implication of the decision.
Dr. Luigi Bradizza, assistant professor of political science, will clear up the confusion and probe some of the more important causes of the controversy when he presents the University’s annual Constitution Day lecture.
“Abortion, Religion, Obamacare, and the Constitution: Untying a Gordian Knot of Political Confusion after Burwell v. Hobby Lobby” will be held at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 17 in the Young Building boardroom. The talk will be impartial, evenhanded and non-partisan. Everyone is welcome, and there will be an opportunity for audience questions.
Seating for Bradizza’s lecture is limited and reservations are suggested. To RSVP, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
