Victory for Hobby Lobby

by Matthew J. Franck

We could use good news around these parts, and here’s some that’s very welcome: Hobby Lobby has won an appeal to the en banc Tenth Circuit in its suit against HHS Secretary Sebelius for imposing the contraception/sterilization/abortifacient mandate on the company’s provision of health insurance to its employees, contrary to the religious conscience of the Christian owners of the business.  The case continues, but in a much more favorable posture now.  More details here at the website of the Becket Fund, whose tireless and persuasive lawyers are today’s heroes for the defense of freedom and the Constitution.  Bravo for Kyle Duncan and Mark Rienzi!
