Today on the Signorile Show!

3:35pm ET -  High school teacher Emily Herx first started fertility treatments with the blessing of her principal.  Two weeks later, the monsignor called her “a grave immoral sinner,” and she was fired.  Herx filed a discrimination lawsuit, but the church argues that she violated church standards.  Then, the church went a step further to say that religious liberty rights protect the school from even appearing before the court.

Reporter Molly Redden covered the case for Mother Jones.  She joins us today to explore the conflict between individual rights and religious exemptions.
