MONTGOMERY, Ala., June 30, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ -- The Foundation for Moral Law, a Montgomery-based legal foundation dedicated to the protection of constitutional liberties, lauds the Supreme Court for today's 5-4 ruling that closely-held corporations like Hobby Lobby cannot be compelled to fund insurance mandates that include abortion or birth control in violation of their religious beliefs.
Foundation President Kayla Moore noted that "The Foundation filed an amicus brief supporting Hobby Lobby. In its brief the Foundation argued that the Affordable Care Act insurance mandate forced the owners of Hobby Lobby to either (1) violate their deeply-held religious beliefs or (2) forego their right to do business as a corporation. Much of the Court's ruling is in accord with the Foundation's argument."
Mrs. Moore added that while the Foundation rejoices in this victory, "the battle over Obamacare is far from over. Today's decision protects closely-held corporations like Hobby Lobby, but the protection for other corporations and broader issues like the Origination Clause of Article I Sec. 7 are still being litigated in other cases working their way through the federal courts. The Foundation will continue to fight these battles until the constitutional liberties of all Americans are secured against the intrusions of socialized medicine."
