Conestoga Wood v. Sebelius
(consolidated with Hobby Lobby v. Burwell)
(opposing the Obamacare abortifacient/birth control mandate)

admin First Amendment

The Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. Obamacare, requires that certain employers provide health care to their employees, which includes birth control, including abortifacients, regardless of the beliefs of the employer.  CLDEF’s amicus curiae brief argued that this requirement violates the Free Exercise Clause in that the Obamacare mandate is not a bona fide public health measure within the jurisdiction of the State, but a proselytizing measure promoting at taxpayers’ expense a promiscuous sexual lifestyle.
