Michigan Set to Make ‘Religious Freedom Restoration Act’ Law
In Lansing over the weekend, a bill was passed called the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. It will allow people to refuse another person's service if it conflicts with their religious beliefs.
For example, a pharmacist could refuse to fill a doctor's prescription for birth control, or HIV medication. However, House Speaker Jase Bolger says that the law is meant to protect (for example) the Jewish mother who doesn't want an autopsy performed on her son.
It's complicated, and there's a lot of misinformation going around about it. The RFRA would not, however, 'allow anyone to refuse service to anyone and claim their 'religious beliefs' require them to discriminate and get away with it.'
