Washington, DC – Late last night the Supreme Court ruled in favor of religious rights over ObamaCare’s abortion mandate. Judge Samuel Alito Jr. blocked a federal appeals court ruling that would have forced Catholic groups in Pennsylvania to pay for abortion-inducing drugs for their employees.
“For the fifth time, the Supreme Court has acted against Obama’s tyrannical, secular mandate,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. “Never before have Americans been forced to participate in human genocide. Never before have Americans been forced to a take part in same-sex unions. Christians living in America are facing a secular assault on our values and our religious liberties,” Staver pointed out.
“Some have said ‘Obamacare is a done deal.’ We are finding that is not the case. The courts are just now beginning to respond to the many constitutional challenges of a so-called healthcare system that was used by secularists in the White House to attack sincerely held religious beliefs,” Staver continued.
Liberty Counsel filed the first private suit against ObamaCare on behalf of Liberty University on the first day ObamaCare was signed into law. “I applaud the Supreme Court for stopping ObamaCare’s assault on human life, religious liberty, and conscience,” Staver concluded.
