We have recently seen ballot and legislative efforts that could allow religious organizations to challenge any government regulation that they perceive as burdening their right to engage in religious activities even if the burden is not specific to the activity itself. In light of the religious opposition to Planned Parenthood in Colorado, this could have a significant impact on the laws and regulations in place to protect our business, clients, and their access to services.
