Judiciary Blocks Obamacare Mandate
In the first-ever legal victory against the ObamaCare mandate, Alliance Defending Freedom secured a major victory for Colorado’s family-owned Hercules Industries –
a ruling with enormous implications for religious freedom in America.
The desire of Hercules’ owners to run their company in a manner that reflects their sincerely held religious convictions (including the sanctity of life) has put them on a legal collision course with the Obama administration, whose mandate would require the company to provide contraception, sterilization, and so-called “morning after” pills for its employees.
Alliance Defending Freedom filed a lawsuit on behalf of Hercules, challenging the order, and in August, a federal judge granted the company an injunction, blocking enforcement of the mandate pending a decision in the lawsuit – a stunning legal rebuke to the government’s case.
