CWA Disappointed in Today’s HHS Mandate Policy “Update”
Washington D.C. - Concerned Women for America CEO and President Penny Nance has issued the following statement in response to the Obama Administration’s HHS Mandate policy update:
The Obama Administration’s blatant attempt to mislead Americans by announcing a so-called “update” that fails to protect faith based institutions clearly shows his intent to trample the religious liberties of Americans. Requiring employers affiliated with the Christian faith, like Concerned Women for America, to include free contraception and abortion-inducing drugs in their health insurance plans is contrary to both Judeo-Christian doctrine and constitutional guarantees of religious freedom. When religious groups and individual Americans are forced to deny their deeply held religious convictions, it is not called “balance,” it’s called “tyranny.”
As much as President Obama would like us to believe this is a “women’s right issue,” this is really a religious freedom issue. The simple fact remains, nothing has changed.
More than 40 lawsuits have been filed by religious nonprofits and secular for-profit businesses claiming the mandate violates their religious beliefs. Concerned Women for America and others will not tolerate this unprecedented trampling of our First Amendment rights. Our Founding Fathers died for this right to religious liberty.
