Lawsuit against Obama’s abortion pill mandate moves forward


Thursday, September 05, 2013

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Michael Norton regarding the decision of the U.S Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit to reverse a district court’s order denying preliminary injunction in Armstrong 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 court’s decision is a positive step in the right direction for the Armstrongs and for all family job creators across the country. As many other courts have found, the abortion pill mandate is an excessive burden on the religious freedom guaranteed by the Constitution to all Americans. That’s why we are seeking to stop enforcement of the mandate against Cherry Creek Mortgage Co., as well as for other family-run businesses.”
 
Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building, non-profit legal organization that advocates for the right of people to freely live out their faith.
