NEW YORK, NY – Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement about the Supreme Court’s decision to hear challenges to the Affordable Care Act’s HHS mandate.
“It’s a good day for religious liberty. The U.S. Supreme Court decision to hear lawsuits brought by Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties against the HHS mandate means this unjust requirement will get a full airing.
“We are watching this case with great interest at Priests for Life, since we also have filed suit against the mandate. Its so-called accommodation for religious employers was, in reality, no accommodation at all.”
