UPDATES ABOUT THE CASE

WHAT'S IT ABOUT?

Obamacare’s HHS Mandate (Abortion Pill Mandate) has been challenged at the U.S. Supreme Court on March 25, 2014. Two family-owned companies, Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties, both challenged the Abortion Pill Mandate that would force them to pay for life-ending drugs, or face crippling fines.

The U.S. Supreme Court accepted both cases and consolidated them for the March 25th hearing. The ruling is expected in the summer and the outcome will have a dramatic impact on your religious freedom in America.

Learn about the Abortion Pill Mandate

Obamacare’s abortion pill mandate forces most employers, regardless of their religious or moral convictions, to offer insurance that covers abortion-inducing drugs, sterilization, and contraception. Job creators who don’t comply face the threat of heavy penalties—$100 per day, per employee.
