Excellent news. The HHS Mandate clearly violates our first amendment freedom of religion.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or
prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of
speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to
assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Attorneys with the Alliance Defense Fund, one of the many pro-life groups that have been fighting the pro-abrotion HHS mandate in court, tell LifeNews that the Obama administration has been defeated in 10 of 14 court cases, so far.
Although the cases are all in the lower court stage and the battle have been the kinds of early skirmishes that typically take place in long legal battles, ADF Senior Legal Counsel Matt Bowman is encouraged.
Amidst a flurry of activity this month in Alliance Defending Freedom lawsuits against President Obama’s abortion pill mandate, the administration’s record in cases litigated so far stands at 10 losses and only four wins, Bowman says.
“Americans should be free to honor God and abide by their consciences at work, home, and church,” he said. “Washington politicians can’t confine our faith to the four walls of our homes and churches alone. Honoring God is important every day, in all areas of life, including in our work. The Obama administration’s attacks on faith and business prove that it doesn’t respect either one.”
