Michigan Company Wins Victory Over HHS Mandate

Stop Obama's HHS Mandate signA US District Court has ruled that the Federal Government cannot force a Catholic-owned Michigan company to provide insurance coverage for sterilization, contraceptives, and abortion-inducing drugs.

Michigan based Autocam Medical, LLC filed suit back in 2012 against the Obama Administration’s unjust HHS Mandate and, after failing to receive injunctive relief from it, took their case all the way to the US Supreme Court.

The High Court remanded the case back to the district court and this ruling in their favor is the result.

“Coercing citizens to violate their conscientious religious beliefs makes a mockery of the very notion of religious freedom,” Tom Brejcha, president and chief counsel of the Chicago-based Thomas More Society.

He said the ruling “sets another strong precedent for the free exercise of religious faith on the part of all American citizens.”
