In response to the Affordable Care Act SCOTUS ruling today, Conscience Cause, a non-profit, non-partisan, public policy advocacy organization comprised of leaders from various faiths and political parties united to secure and preserve our religious freedom, released the following statement:
“We are extremely disappointed by the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which will allow the administration to move forward in implementing its radical HHS mandate that violates our rights of conscience. The first line of the First Amendment in our Constitution guarantees all Americans the right to religious freedom, as our forefathers intended. Now, we have opened the door to a government that sees no limit to the amount of freedoms it can take away.
The HHS mandate represents an egregious affront to religious liberty, and is opposed by Americans of all faiths and denominations.
People of all faiths and who believe in protecting our constitutional principles will continue the fight to repeal and bar any regulation that would compel individuals and institutions, including religious hospitals, schools and charities, to violate the tenets of their faith or be subject to penalty of law. Conscience Cause will continue our efforts to petition Congress to take action to overrule this devastating policy, which undermines our religious freedom. If we do not stand up and make our voices heard, it is only a matter of time before our other liberties come under direct assault.”0 Recommend This
