Do corporations have freedom of religion?

The Supreme Court has agreed to hear a pair of cases contesting the Affordable Care Act's contraception rule. Religious groups are already exempt, but for-profit corporations are not. The companies behind the two cases say they should not have to provide health insurance that covers certain types of birth control that they consider to be a form of abortion. John Berman takes a look at both sides of this issue with legal analysts Jeffrey Toobin and Sunny Hostin and Jay Sekulow, chief counsel at the American Center of Law and Justice.

    My employer should not have the right to force his / her religious beliefs on me as an employee. Where do we draw the line? A company owned by a Jehovah Witness could "refuse blood transfusions" because it is against his beliefs?

    It just stands to reason that corporations have religious rights. After all, didn't the Court grant them "person-hood" at least as far as free speech goes.
