Obamacare has been in the news lately, as the new regulations are being enacted in a swift manner. Now, employers must decide whether or not to abandon their principles and comply with the regulations which include a mandate requiring coverage of the morning after pill, a drug that can cause an early abortion. One company, however, refuses to surrender its religious freedom and is disobeying the mandate. The owners of the Hobby Lobby retail chain is facing daily fines of $1.3 million for their refusal to comply with the mandate. As of today, they have incurred fines totaling $ 11.7 million. Unless the courts intervene, the company will accumulate a half a billion dollars in fines by the end of this year.
FRC released a video today regarding Hobby Lobby standing for their beliefs, and you can also support them by visiting our Facebook page.
Also, my colleague, Ken Klukowski, has been covering the news regarding Hobby Lobby and the Obamacare mandate’s attack on religious liberty. You can read his recent op-eds, which were featured on Breitbart.com.
We commend Hobby Lobby, as they take a stand for religious liberty.
