Alabama Attorney General joins legal challenge against HHS Mandate.
“This dispute over the contraception mandate is the natural consequace of of Obamacare’s individual mandate, which my office is also challenging in court, along with many other states.,” he continued. “If the federal government can mandate that everyone has to buy something, then the government can require us to buy something even if we are morally opposed to paying for it. That is why I hope the Supreme Court strikes down Obamacare as unconstitutional.”
Strange continue, “The people of Alabama have recognized the importance of [religious freedom] and have enshrined it in our Constitution as well. Alabama law does not allow anyone to be forced to offer a product that is against his or her religious beliefs or conscience… The issue is clear: either Alabamians and Americans around the country will be allowed to exercise their religious freedom and say no to something they disagree with, or they won’t. We hope the Obama administration will listen and adopt a position that supports our first freedom, rather than undermine it.”
