8th Circuit suspends abortion pill mandate against MN family-run business

Friday, February 01, 2013

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Legal Counsel Matt Bowman regarding the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit’s preliminary injunction Friday that blocks enforcement of the Obama administration’s abortion pill mandate against a Minnesota family-run business in Annex Medical v. Sebelius:

“Americans have the God-given freedom to live and do business according to their faith. Honoring God is not just important within the four walls of a church; it is important every day, in all areas of life, including in our work. Freedom is not the government’s to give and take away when it pleases. The court did the right thing in issuing its order, and we are confident that this unconstitutional mandate’s days are numbered.”

Alliance Defending Freedom allied attorneys with ActRight Legal Foundation are litigating the case together with lead counsel Erick G. Kaardal of Mohrman & Kaardal, P.A.

Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building legal ministry that advocates for the right of people to freely live out their faith.
