US Supreme Court lobs a major blow at ObamaCare

Today’s 5 – 4 U.S. Supreme Court decision striking down ObamaCare’s employer paid contraception and abortificides —- abortion inducing drug  —– mandate is a decisive victory for religious freedom.  Barack Obama’s efforts at the socialization of American health care has suffered a major setback.

This decision is even a more significant triumph since it is the first time that the high court has ruled that for-profit businesses can hold religious views under federal law.

On June 28, 2012, Chief Justice John Roberts stunned conservatives by joining with the liberal Justices Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor—– as he shockingly cast the deciding vote upholding the ‘Affordable Care Act,’ which Obama viewed as his signature domestic achievement. The flagrant and massive federal overreach into American’s personal health care decisions is widely known as ObamaCare. Here is a montage of Obama’s repeated lies.*

In today’s decision, Justice Samuel Alito wrote the majority opinion. Justice Anthony Kennedy, often a swing vote, voted with the majority. The court’s four liberal justices hung tight, with Ginsburg writing the dissent.

The decision in Burwell, Secretary of Health and Human Services, et al v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., (joined by Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp.) can be read here in its entirety.

    Great news! i was unaware of the fact that this decision marks the first time the Supreme Court has ruled that for-profit businesses can hold religious views under federal law. I never realized such a restriction existed.

      Better late than never, but let’s not forget that by voting with the liberals two years ago, John Roberts is solely responsible for the implementation of Obamacare. He was a 2005 GW Bush appointee.
      i will never trust him.

        I feel the same about John Roberts, Joe. He sold us all down the river by colluding with the left.

    it will be interesting to see if this will have any effect on businesses like the ones that do not want to cater gay weddings etc… to actually follow their beliefs in the right to refuse service where courts have been compelling them to violate their personal freedoms and beliefs.

      Conscience is conscience. In a perfect world, religious exemptions would be across the board. Unfortunately we are also dealing with an ever-increasing and vocal Muslim minority that will attempt to use these laws to push their shira restrictions upon us all.

    Just in time for Independence Day, you may want to visit a movie theater and see Dinesh D’Souza’s new movie, entitled:
    “America Imagine A World Without Her”.

    This time around, Harkins (which did Not show D’Souza’s excellent docu-movie “2016: Obama’s America”, is now decided that they can make some money by showing the new movie.
