Tomorrow, Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood will go before the Supreme Court in defense of their right to operate their business in accordance with their faith, a concept that is a long held American tradition and protected by the Constitution.
Hobby Lobby and other family businesses have refused to comply with HHS regulations that mandate they offer insurance policies that include abortifacient drugs. If they lose this case, they will be forced to pay $1.3 million in punitive fines per day or cancel the healthcare coverage for all their employees.
According to a poll commissioned by Family Research Council and Alliance Defending Freedom, 59% of likely voters disapprove of the HHS Mandate (including 54% of women ages 18-44!). These numbers are further evidence of a nation that has a deep desire to maintain the religious liberty that has been integral to the functioning of this nation since its inception.
It is imperative that Americans now stand together in support of religious liberty-as envisioned by our founders, and guaranteed by our Constitution.
Tomorrow, FRC will be on the steps of the Supreme Court standing alongside the courageous Green family. Although we understand that not everyone may be able to do this, there are ways that you can show your support for religious liberty right where you are:
- First and foremost, please pray for the Green family and those involved in their litigation.
- Join us on March 29, for #HobbyLobbyDay by RSVPing to this Facebook event.
- Add this banner to your Facebook or Twitter profile to show your support for Hobby Lobby.
Finally, we want to extend a special thanks to Mike Huckabee for helping to underscore the the importance of this case and our religious freedom. Watch Governor Huckabee talk about #HobbyLobbyDay in the following clip.
Thank you again for your support and prayers as we advance faith, family and freedom.
