Hobby Lobby Wins At Supreme Court
Obama is finally getting put in his place.
Check it out:
The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday in a 5-4 decision ruled that a closely held corporation is exempt from Obamacare’s abortifacient mandates.
The decision in the case brought by Hobby Lobby, an Oklahoma-based chain with about 13,000 employees, and Conestoga Wood Specialties, a Pennsylvania cabinet maker, was about the government’s required payments for birth control – but specifically abortion-inducing birth control.
Obamacare originally planned for every individual and entity to fund the abortion industry, and the administration already had been pressured to provide exemptions for churches and accommodations for religious nonprofits.
The Hobby Lobby case focused on the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which protects the individual beliefs of Americans.
The question presented in the case was whether any law in the United States, such as a nationwide health-care management system imposed by the government, can be so important that Washington can order people to violate their religious faith, on contradiction to the freedom guaranteed by the First Amendment?
The issues raised by the Green family, owners of Hobby Lobby, and the Hahn family, owners of Conestoga Wood, also have been raised in literally dozens of cases across the nation.
