Hobby Lobby Wins Injunction Against Obama’s HHS Abortion Mandate
Hobby Lobby won an injunction against Barack Obama’s HHS abortion mandate today. The Obama administration was set to punish Hobby Lobby with a $1.3 million daily fine for not covering abortion pills for their employees. The Supreme Court shut that down. Today a federal court granted Hobby Lobby a preliminary injunction against the HHS mandate.
The Alliance Defending Freedom reported:
The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Legal Counsel Matt Bowman regarding a federal court’s decision Friday to grant Hobby Lobby, represented by the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, a preliminary injunction against the HHS abortion pill mandate:
“Every American, including family business owners, should be free to live and do business according to their faith. We commend the court’s ruling which is a victory for religious freedom and freedom of conscience. The Obama administration claims ‘unwavering’ support for religious freedom, but the only thing unwavering is the administration’s tenacious opposition to that freedom.”
