Not sure if Hillsdale considers itself a Christian college, but numerous stories in the press have labeled it so. The parade of fund raising emails I receive are full of culture fear around public education and the radical left. I haven't heard them claim religious freedom, but they make sure to always say that they are free of government intrusions since they don't take one penny of aid.

I am an outside observer so maybe the accurate story is different. But the ACA regulations under Obama called for covering birth control and abortion.

Wheaton went to court to argue it should not be obligated to cover or even notify the government for alternative arrangements. But as I understand it, both had been covered prior to the requirement by Wheaton’s insurance. And Wheaton has to work to changed coverage before the law suit.

I've considered the health policy matter and might include it. Hobby Lobby certainly moved the goalposts.
