Today the D.C. Circuit Court ruled in favor of the Gilardi brothers who own Freshway Foods and Freshway Logistics, an Ohio-based company, in its lawsuit against the Obama administration's abortifacient and contraceptive mandate. Unfortunately, they did not overturn the lower court ruling against the company itself.
Family Research Council (FRC) President Tony Perkins made the following comments in response to the ruling in Gilardi vs. HHS:
"We are very pleased that the court ruled that the Religious Freedom Protection Act protects the Gilardi brothers from being forced to violate their religious beliefs as demanded by President Obama's HHS mandate. However, we disagree with the ruling that Freshway Foods is not equally impacted by this mandate that is hostile to religious freedom.
