Obama Administration Fails to Protect Religious Liberty of All Citizens

February 4, 2013

INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Right to   Life President and CEO, Mike Fichter, released the following statement after   the Obama administration released details today about a shift in the Health and Human Services (HHS) Mandate as it applies to religious-affiliated entities:”The Obama administration mistakenly believes that it can play God in   determining whose freedoms are protected and whose are not,” said   Fichter. “The reported change in the HHS Mandate fails to recognize the   liberties of all Americans in determining whether or not to provide coverage   for abortion-causing drugs and therefore falls far short of being   acceptable.  The HHS Mandate must be completely repealed.”

The Obama administration announced some religious-affiliated entities would   be allowed to opt-out of the HHS Mandate, but this change does not address   companies whose owners oppose the HHS Mandate on moral grounds. The HHS   Mandate requires employers to provide insurance plans covering birth control,   abortion-causing drugs and sterilizations.

Indiana Right to Life’s   mission is to protect the right to life, especially of unborn children,   through positive education, compassionate advocacy and promotion of healthy   alternatives to abortion.
