Congressman Fleischmann Responds To Supreme Court Ruling In Hobby Lobby Case

June 30, 2014
Press Release

WASHINGTON− Congressman Fleischmann issued the following statement in response to the Supreme Court’s decision in the Hobby Lobby case.

“This morning, the Supreme Court defended religious freedoms by affirming that the federal government cannot infringe upon the religious beliefs of businesses like Hobby Lobby by forcing them to pay for contraceptives. Today’s ruling is a huge victory for religious liberties and the protection of the unborn, and yet another halt to Obama’s overreaching power. Our nation was founded on the core value of religious freedom, and Obamacare’s contraceptive mandate is a violation of this most fundamental liberty. The American people should never have to compromise their values or sacrifice their freedoms, and we must continue fighting to secure these Constitutional rights for all individuals and organizations.”
