On January 28, 2014, the Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund joined in an amicus curiae brief filed in the United States Supreme Court, urging the Supreme Court to reject the HHS mandate that requires employers to provide insurance coverage for abortifacient drugs and devices, elective sterilization, and contraceptive services.  

This mandate imposes a substantial burden on the religious freedom of Catholic employers and other religious believers.  The brief shows how compliance with the HHS mandate makes objecting employers complicit in religiously forbidden actions under principles of Catholic moral theology.  Sixty-six Catholic ethicists and theologians also signed this brief in support of Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood, companies owned and operated by faithful Christians who have fearlessly stepped up to fight for religious freedom.  We hope and expect that this amicus brief will make an important contribution to the Supreme Court’s consideration of the HHS mandate.
