TPP Action Applauds Supreme Court Ruling on Obama-Era Contraception Mandate, Win for Trump


Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement about today’s Supreme Court ruling that upholds the Trump Administration’s plan to give employers broad religious and moral exemptions from the Obama-Era mandate that health insurance they provide employees covers birth control.

“This is a big win for religious freedom and freedom of conscience. The Trump Administration was absolutely correct in overturning the Obama-Era mandate forcing religious groups, including Little Sisters of the Poor, to pay for things that violate their religious beliefs. What the Obama Administration did was outrageous in itself, but it was also a dangerous precedent for the future. If there’s anything that should unite all Americans, it’s defending our First Amendment right to religious freedom.  Our members are pleased that a strong Supreme Court majority of 7-2 shared that view today.”
