Owner of Colo. senior centers receives permanent order against abortion-pill mandate
“All Americans should oppose unjust laws that allow the government to force people to surrender their constitutionally protected freedom to live and work according to their deepest beliefs. While we are very pleased with the order issued in this case, many other similar cases continue throughout the country. In light of the Supreme Court’s ruling against the abortion-pill mandate in Conestoga and Hobby Lobby, and the clearly protected right of Americans to be free from this type of government coercion at home, in their family businesses, and in non-profit endeavors that benefit everyone, the Obama administration should give up its blind and indefensible efforts to punish people of faith and let freedom prevail.”
Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building, non-profit legal organization that advocates for the right of people to freely live out their faith.
