Concerned Women for America Applauds the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby Decision

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Concerned Women for America (CWA), the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization, applauds today’s Supreme Court decisions in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood v. Burwell where the Court upheld our fundamental rights to the free exercise of religion.

Penny Nance, CWA’s CEO and President, had this to say:

Concerned Women for America has stood in support of the Green and Hahn families throughout this process because we knew that their courageous efforts would ultimately serve our country for years to come. Religious freedom is one of our most cherished rights, and we are ecstatic that the Supreme Court has sent such a strong message protecting them.

We are especially thankful that the Court saw right through the Obama Administration’s false claim to be working on behalf of all women with this unconstitutional mandate. As our brief to the Court said: “No one person, and certainly not the Government, speaks for the interests of all women, and the Mandate cannot be generalized as a measure that advances the interests of all women.”

The mandate served only that group of women who support the president’s radical pro-abortion agenda, an agenda that would sacrifice our constitutional right to the free exercise of religion at the altar of so-called reproductive rights. It clearly works against those free-thinking women CWA represents who reject society’s imposed feminist values for the freedom envisioned by our founding principles of liberty and justice for all.

The Justices have done the country a great service today by staying true to those principles and preserving religious liberty for all, including the women represented by the other side.
