From LifeSiteNews.com:

Attorneys general from thirteen states have sent Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius a joint letter asking for increased religious freedom protections under ObamaCare.

Alabama’s attorney general was among those who signed the letter, along with those from Colorado, Georgia, Florida, Idaho, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas ,and West Virginia.

In response to overwhelming outrage and organized protests by Catholics and others who oppose being forced to pay for drugs and procedures they consider immoral, the Obama administration proposed a narrow exemption for some churches that object to the mandate on religious grounds.

But the attorneys general complained that this does not do enough to protect religious business owners or other employers from being forced to pay for treatments that violate their personal religious faith.

Response: There are literally hundreds of organizations and businesses suing the Obama administration over the HHS mandate that requires everyone except churches or worship centers to provide insurance that covers contraceptives including abortifacients to their employees.

The mandate stands as one of the worst challenges to religious freedom ever in the history of this constitutional republic. The petition of 13 state Attorney Generals demonstrates the shaky legal ground the administration is actually standing on. The administration continues to demand compliance regardless. This continues to be a story that the media is substantially ignoring but is not going away anytime soon.           *Top
