University of Notre Dame Wins Another Huge Victory Against Obama’s HHS Mandate

Just days ago, the US Supreme Court ordered a lower court to reconsider its ruling against the University of Notre Dame in their case against the Obama Administration’s HHS Mandate!
The Seventh Circuit Court’s decision against Notre Dame essentially made it the only religious non-profit organization in the country not protected from Obama’s unjust mandate that businesses cover contraception, sterilizations and abortion-inducing drugs in their healthcare plans.
Mark Rienzi, Senior Counsel of the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, which filed an amicus brief in the case had this to say about the decision:
This is a major blow to the federal government’s contraception mandate. For the past year, the Notre Dame decision has been the centerpiece of the government’s effort to force religious ministries to violate their beliefs or pay fines to the IRS. As with the Supreme Court’s decisions in Little Sisters of the Poor and Hobby Lobby, this is a strong signal that the Supreme Court will ultimately reject the government’s narrow view of religious liberty. The government fought hard to prevent this GVR, but the Supreme Court rejected their arguments.
Thank God for another win in the fight against this unjust mandate! Stay tuned to the Stand Up for Religious Freedom blog for more news as this and other cases unfold.
