LIBERTY INSTITUTE CELEBRATES U.S. SUPREME COURT’S “DECISION OF STARTLING BREADTH” PROTECTING FREEDOM OF CONSCIENCE RIGHTS    


Attorneys Applaud Decision in Hobby Lobby/Conestoga Wood Case Recognizing All Americans Are Free to Live and Work According to Their Beliefs Without Fear of Government Punishment  

PLANO, TEXAS, June 30, 2014— Today, Liberty Institute celebrates the United States Supreme Court’s important religious liberty “decision of startling breadth” in favor of the freedom of conscience rights of Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. and Conestoga Wood Specialties Corporation against the Obama Administration’s controversial HHS Abortion Pill Mandate

“This is a landmark win for the freedom of conscience rights of every American, including business owners, recognizing that they are free to live and work according to their beliefs without the fear of government,” said Jeff Mateer, General Counsel of the Liberty Institute. “Today, the Supreme Court recognized that citizens cannot be forced to choose between violating their faith and being punished by the government for following their faith.” 

In January, Liberty Institute filed a friend-of-the-court brief in the United States Supreme Court supporting Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. and Conestoga Wood Specialties Corporation.   Liberty Institute represents several for-profit companies and non-profit ministries who are in various stages of challenging the ObamaCare Abortion Pill Mandate.
