June 26, 2014 SCOTUS issues a huge victory for pro-life activists in a 9-0 decision rejecting a Massachusetts law that established a 35 foot buffer zone around abortion clinics that prohibited pro-life counselors from entering to counsel women seeking an abortion; ruling it inconsistent with the First Amendment.
June 30, 2014 the High Court, in a 5-4 decision, rendered its verdict in the long-awaited Hobby Lobby v. Sebelius case in favor of not only Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood but for religious freedom – the very core of our nation’s founding. This ruling was a victory for all Americans of faith and conscience; the HHS contraception mandate cannot force for-profit closely held companies to violate their religious beliefs by paying for emergency contraception that could cause an abortion.
The HHS mandate is immoral and bad policy! EVAA applauds the U. S. Supreme Court for their rulings in favor of religious freedom and free speech.
It is now up to us, the pro-life voters and activists, to build on these victories and elect only those candidates moral courage to stand up for LIFE and Religious Freedom in the 2014 election and beyond; with the assurance they will work to advance our Nation’s Christian traditional values.
