Congressman John Fleming, M.D., released the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the religious liberty rights of family-owned businesses like Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties:

“Finally, a firewall has been put up to stop some of the Obama Administration’s attacks on religious freedom. This decision reinforces the protections guaranteed in the First Amendment: family business owners are free to live out their religious beliefs, and the government cannot force them to pay for potentially life-ending drugs and devices.
 
“The High Court’s recent decisions that protected the free speech right of pro-lifers outside abortion clinics, that struck down the president’s unconstitutional use of recess appointments, and that blocked unions from compelling health care workers to pay dues, all represent significant blows to President Obama and his cronies. But today’s Hobby Lobby decision outweighs all of them by actively denying the stunning and unconstitutional overreach of this Administration.”
