The United States 10th Circuit Court of Appeals has stopped the US government from subjecting a Christian business to $1.3 million in daily fines for failure to comply with Obamacare. These fines were set to begin this past week against major craft store The Hobby Lobby and its sister company. They refused to provide certain birth controls for their employee’s health care plans, including the morning after pill and abortions.
The injunction is just the beginning of the fight to stop Obamacare’s abortion mandate. On July 19th a district court will begin hearings on whether the religious beliefs are so deeply rooted that mandating the company provide every form of birth control would violate their conscience.
But the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals has already said that the business would likely prevail against the US government. The Court compared this issue to a kosher butcher that doesn’t need to adopt non-kosher practices as part of a government order.
Christians cannot be bullied into accepting sinful medical practices. In fact, many Christian businesses and organizations have filed lawsuits against the government to stop this evil mandate.
The belief that life begins at conception is deeply rooted in Scripture. By forcing Christians to finance health care plans that murder unborn children, the government is egregiously overstepping its boundaries.
Currently the United States Congress is continuing its debates on the Federal Budget for Fiscal Year 2014. Because all spending bills must originate in the House, Speaker Boehner has a tremendous opportunity to stop funding Obamacare and it’s evil abortion mandate.
