For now, the Little Sisters of the Poor can stop defending themselves against unnecessary litigation that attempted to force nuns, of all blessed people, to pay for birth control.
Six state attorneys general seek to force the Little Sisters to violate their consciences or pay millions in fines, all without having to face these religious caregivers in a court of law.
The recently filed lawsuits blow open the multi-step deception Democrats knowingly employed to furtively insert the abortifacient and birth control mandate into the Affordable Care Act.
The Trump administration just provided expanded exemptions from Obamacare’s abortifacient and birth control mandate. The ACLU is already challenging them.
‘I don’t want to live in an America where nuns have to sue for the right to not pay for birth control because that is a moral concern for them.’
Lena Dunham doesn’t argue that commitment-free sex and abortion are more foundational to self-government than the right of Catholic nuns to serve others according to their faith.
While a reprieve from the mandate would be another victory for the Little Sisters, their court battle would continue since subsequent administrations could issue new rules returning the fines.
The religious liberty of people of faith and the rights of LGBT individuals can be protected at the same time. There is no reason protection cannot accommodate all Americans equally.
Donald Trump’s executive order on religious liberty does little, and what little it does can be easily overturned.
Abortion advocates are attacking Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch for agreeing with the Supreme Court’s decisions in the Hobby Lobby and Little Sisters of the Poor cases.
Trump promised while on the campaign trail that he would defend religious freedom. Now is the time to make good on that promise.
As 2016 comes to a close, we’ve compiled a list of the women who made the world a better place this year.
The media is having a fainting spell over Trump’s quip that Hillary would go to jail for her emails, but they forget Democrats are the ones who throw the book at their opponents all the time.
It’s time for Congress to return the institution to an even-bodied court. Doing so would create a more legitimate and less politicized institution.
The Obama administration implemented a rule mandating that health providers perform sex-change operations or lose their federal funding.
President Obama believes in open debate and tolerance of opposing viewpoints—but make your bathrooms trans-friendly or else.
The Little Sisters of the Poor just beat Obama in court, so why don’t the media want you to know anything about them? Why can’t they mention their name?
The Supreme Court said The Little Sisters of The Poor would not have to pay millions in IRS fines for refusing to provide contraceptives to their employees.
This case shows just how difficult it has become to protect religious liberty from overweening state power.
It is not only wrong but harmful to young women for the contraceptive mandate to frame the issue of women’s equality as merely an issue of preventative health care.
