SCOTUS and the Little Sisters of the Poor

Heather CordascoHeather Cordasco appeared on the show with me to talk about the case before the Supreme Court in regards to the Little Sisters of the Poor.

About Heather:

An Evangelical Christian, she can’t remember a time in her life that she wasn’t staunchly pro-life. In her early twenties, she recalls having a discussion with her friends about what each of them would do if they experienced an unexpected pregnancy. It still haunts her to this day that she didn’t do enough to change the outcome when one friend eventually chose to have an abortion.

Ms. Cordasco has spent the years since building her social, professional and political networks, serving on school boards, joining community groups and aligning herself with groups dedicated to preserving religious freedom in America.

She was a former candidate for James City County Board of Supervisors and is a graduate of the FBI Citizen Academy, the Sorensen Institute for Political Leadership and LEAD Virginia.

Currently Ms. Cordasco serves on the board of Virginia’s Family Policy Council and is an Ambassador with Alliance Defending Freedom.

She feels strongly that abortion is harmful to women – to their health and psychological well-being – and is committed to speaking out against the Health & Human Services’ (HHS) mandate and its threat to religious freedom that requires employers to provide coverage of all forms of contraception, including abortifacients.

While the perception may be that all women readily accept the conventional wisdom about women’s health and women’s freedom, there is in fact a real diversity of opinion among women on topics like sex, marriage and family life and the serious religious liberty issues currently at stake.”

In this clip you’ll hear Heather refer to WSTF or Women Speak For Themselves.  You’ll find the website here.
