Supreme Court Hobby Lobby Decision a Win for Religious Freedom

Glory to God for all things!

This is by far the most encouraging news in a long time.  Thanks to these Christian men and women who fought for their belief in the sanctity of  life.  May there be more who will stand in the gap.

WASHINGTON – Today, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties’ case regarding the Health and Human Services (HHS) Mandate. The mandate refers to the requirement in Obamacare that forces private companies to provide birth control and abortion-causing drugs in employee insurance plans. Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties’ owners argued that the HHS Mandate violated their religious freedom.“Today’s outcome is a victory for religious freedom,” stated Mike Fichter, President and CEO of Indiana Right to Life. “No company should be forced to provide drugs that end a human life. Because of today’s ruling, now no closely held company will have to provide those drugs under Obamacare. This is a big win for the unborn and for religious freedom.”Indiana Right to Life’s mission is to protect the right to life, especially of unborn children, through positive education, compassionate advocacy and promotion of healthy alternatives to abortion.

Let us keep our hearts burning in prayer for the love of others and especially of the innocent unborn child.
