McMorris Rodgers: A Triumphant Victory for Religious Freedom

WASHINGTON, DC– Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) released the following statement in response to the Supreme Court’s ruling that some employers will not be required under the Affordable Care Act to provide insurance coverage for certain drugs and devices that are contrary to their religious or moral beliefs.

“Today’s ruling marks a victory for religious freedom and for the American people. We live in a nation founded on the fundamental right that all people can live and work according to their beliefs – without fear of punishment from the federal government. This morning the Supreme Court defended liberty by ruling that American family business owners should not be forced to choose between their faith or unlawful, unnecessary government mandates. While we celebrate this triumph for religious freedom today, our work is not finished. We must keep fighting to ensure that the Constitutional rights of other individuals and organizations are also protected.”
