ACLJ Files Brief with U.S. Supreme Court in HHS Mandate Challenge

October 30, 2013

Today, the ACLJ filed an amicus brief with the U.S. Supreme Court in support of a family-owned business challenging the HHS Mandate -- the federal regulation requiring non-exempt employers to pay for and provide abortifacient drugs, contraception, and sterilization in employee health plans, or pay ruinous financial penalties.  The case is Autocam v. Sebelius.

Our brief supports the petition of the Kennedy family and the companies they own and control that asks the Supreme Court to review their challenge against the Mandate under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (“RFRA”).
