Pa. abortion pill mandate case to be appealed to US Supreme Court


Wednesday, August 14, 2013

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Legal Counsel Matt Bowman regarding the decision of the full U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit to decline review of an earlier three-judge panel’s decision in Conestoga Wood Specialties v. Sebelius, a lawsuit against the Obama administration’s abortion pill mandate:

“Every American, including family business owners, should be free to live and do business according to their faith. The cost of religious freedom for the Hahn family, which owns Conestoga Wood Specialties, is the same as the cost to many other job creators across the country who face this mandate: the potential for massive fines that would cripple their businesses and threaten jobs. For this reason, we will be asking the U.S. Supreme Court to review this case.”

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