Freedom Matters Podcast: A Cause for Great Concern

October 17, 2017

This week on Freedom Matters, we discuss the recent U.S. Supreme Court order in Stormans v. Wiesman and the decision in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt.

Greg Stormans, whose family owns Ralph’s Thriftway in Olympia Washington, joins the show to talk about the pharmacy rules in Washington state that would force his family’s small local pharmacy to sell drugs that cause abortion. When asked about how he and his family got through the last 10 years, Greg said:

“At times during those years I didn’t carry [the burden] as well as I wanted, but in the last several years I’ve been able to look to the Lord and say ‘You have to carry this burden for us because it’s too big for us to do.’ I think spiritually things really changed for our company, for us individually as family members, and me personally, just by turning this over to the Lord, saying ‘we need Your help, we need to put this at your feet because we can’t to this alone.’ We’ve continued to have our faith be the cornerstone of our business operations and we always will.

For the first time in nearly a decade, the U.S. Supreme Court recently heard an abortion-related case. But, the Court struck down provisions of a Texas law establishing basic health and safety standards for abortion mills. Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Steve Aden joins the show to discuss the future of the pro-life movement after the court's decision.
