Religious Freedom Upheld! Federal Appeals Court Strikes Down Obamacare Contraception MandateTopics: Faith, Political News and commentaries
Religious freedom upheld by Federal Appeals Court ... most certainly to the chagrin and disappointment of people like Barack Obama, Sandra Fluke, etc... who don't give a damn about religious freedom and think women shouldn't have to fork out $9 a month for their own birth control pills.
Via the WaPo:
A divided appeals court panel is siding with Ohio business owners who challenged the birth control mandate under the new federal health care law.More here.
The business owners are two brothers who say the mandate to provide contraceptive coverage would make them violate their Roman Catholic beliefs.
The ruling Friday by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit is one of many on the birth control issue, which likely will be resolved by the Supreme Court.
The appeals court panel says the mandate limits the right of free exercise of religion.
The brothers are Francis and Philip M. Gilardi. They say they donâ€™t want to provide contraceptives like the Plan B pill for their employees. The Gilardis own Freshway Foods and Freshway Logistics of Sidney, Ohio.
[...] Writing for the majority, Judge Janice Rogers Brown wrote that the mandate "trammels the right of free exercise_a right that lies at the core of our constitutional liberties_as protected by the Religious Freedom Restoration Act."
