The Hobby Lobby Case Goes On and On...

Hosted by

Since last week's US Supreme Court decision, angry battles are raging between religious freedom and women's rights. Lawsuits by hundreds of corporations claim insurance coverage for contraception violates their beliefs—even if they don't have to pay for it. Women's groups—and Senate Democrats—counter that no boss should be able to tell a female employee how to protect her own body or plan a family. We hear how it's playing out in state legislatures, Congress, the fight over Obamacare and the November elections.

Also, fighting escalates in the struggle between Israel and Hamas, and how Brazil is handling the "shame of all shames" after its 7-1 World Cup loss.
