Court puts hold on abortion pill mandate for Mich. family business


The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Legal Counsel Matt Bowman regarding Wednesday’s federal court order in Trijicon v. Sebelius which temporarily blocks enforcement of the Obama administration’s abortion pill mandate against a Michigan-based family-run business and puts a hold on the case until another similar case is decided:

“All Americans, including those who run family businesses, should be free to honor God and live according to their consciences whether they are at home, church, or the workplace. The court order in this case is consistent with what the vast majority of courts have found so far--that the abortion pill mandate is an excessive burden on the constitutionally protected religious freedom that is guaranteed to all Americans.”

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