Claiming Moral Values, Trump Creates “Religious Freedom” Division


Donald Trump has decided that the religious sensibilities of health workers who might be opposed to contraception, abortion, and the basic existence of LGBTQ people, are so immense that the government needs a new office to protect them. On Thursday the Trump Administration announced the creation of the "Conscience and Religious Freedom" division of the Department of Health and Human Services. The division will fall under HHS's Office of Civil Rights. Sonali speaks with Rob Boston, director of communications at Americans United for Separation of Church and State.
