Southerland Reacts to First Day of Contraceptive Care Mandate

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Representative Steve Southerland, II issued the following statement today marking the first day of implementation of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services mandate requiring insurance coverage for contraceptive care regardless of an organization's religious beliefs:

"By requiring faith-based organizations to provide insurance coverage for contraceptive care, even when it violates their personal beliefs, the Obama administration has launched yet another attack on religious freedom in America. As a man of faith, I am angered that this administration is forcing employers to make a false choice: violate the tenants of your faith or deny employee coverage and risk expensive fines. I have strongly opposed this Washington power play and remain committed to working with likeminded House colleagues to protect the religious liberties of all Americans."
