Liberty Counsel will not back down from the battle to bring an end to ObamaCare.
Tomorrow, the United States Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in one of the most potentially volatile religious liberties cases ever heard by the High Court. The Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby case will redefine religious liberty in America, one way or another.
Employers such as Hobby Lobby, Conestoga Wood Products, and Liberty University – all of which operate their organizations in accordance with religious principles that respect the sanctity and dignity of human life – are being told by the government that they must either abandon their principles and provide free abortion-inducing drugs and devices to their employees or pay exorbitant fines.
Our amicus brief will be considered as part of this case.
In January, the Liberty Counsel legal team continued our fight against ObamaCare by filing an amicus brief with the Supreme Court in the Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby case.
Liberty Counsel is asking the Court to invalidate the so-called “Preventive Care Mandate,” which includes the provision of abortion drugs and devices. Subjecting employers to such extortion is antithetical to the free exercise protections recognized by the First Amendment.
ObamaCare represents a frontal attack on religious freedom.
Not only does ObamaCare violate the rights of religious employers because of its abortion mandate, it violates the rights of individuals who oppose abortion and the rights of all employers, religious or not.
I am asking you and every friend of Liberty Counsel who supports our efforts to derail ObamaCare to pray for the attorneys representing Hobby Lobby and standing on behalf of religious liberties – and for the Supreme Court Justices as they deliberate these crucial arguments.
The outcome of this case will largely affect Liberty Counsel’s own litigation efforts to remove the scourge of ObamaCare from our nation.
The outcome of Hobby Lobby will set further litigation in motion regardless of the Court’s ruling. And I promise you, Liberty Counsel will be right in the middle of the battle as we have been since day one!
If you would, please consider making a special gift to our litigation fund. No gift is too small – and certainly no gift is too large, given the scope of our litigation docket.
Without the President’s lies, ObamaCare would never have passed.
Barack Obama reneged on a pro-life promise made to get his healthcare “reform” bill through Congress by retracting an ObamaCare “conscientious exemption” for people of faith and religiously oriented institutions.
Now at issue are unalienable rights granted to Americans – not by the government, but by God. The statist intrusions of the Obama administration can never trump our personal, God-given rights!
Please, help us continue standing against this lawless administration and ultimately defeat ObamaCare. We can only do this with your ongoing support!
May God bless you abundantly,
Mathew Staver, Founder and Chairman
