Are corporations people?

By CNN's Deena Zaru

The oral arguments regarding Hobby Lobby vs. Sebelius commence in the Supreme Court on Tuesday. In this case the contraception coverage mandate in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) will be debated, specifically as it applies to for-profit corporations.

The mandate requires businesses of a certain size to provide contraception coverage for their employees. Nearly 50 businesses, many of them Catholic, have sued, and some have protested the coverage of any form of birth control.

However, in the case currently before the Supreme Court, brought on by the Oklahoma-based arts and crafts chain Hobby Lobby Stores Inc., and an identical case brought on by Pennsylvania-based Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp., only certain contraceptives are disputed.

This Sunday...

As Mitt Romney solidifies his position atop the Republican Presidential, we’ll look at President Obama’s re-election strategy with DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL).

Plus, will independents, women and Latinos decide the election, especially in the crucial “swing states?” We’ll ask pollsters Mark Penn and Linda DiVall.

Also, while everyone is still focused on the landmark Health Care Reform legislation, the Supreme Court prepares to hear another politically charged election year case on immigration. And did President Obama step over the line when he spoke about judicial activism? We’ll talk about it with Former Solicitor general Ken Starr and Former Acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal.

And finally, on Easter Sunday a look at the intersection of politics and religion with Ralph Reed, founder and Chairman of the Faith and Freedom Coalition, Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO), a United Methodist Church pastor, and David Brody, Chief Political Correspondent for the Christian Broadcasting Network. Watch a preview here.

It promises to be a great show. Tune in Sunday at 9AM & NOON ET.
