AFLC Challenges Obama’s “Contraception” Mandate in NY Federal Court

Today, the American Freedom Law Center (AFLC), along with co-counsel and civil rights attorneyĀ Charles S. Limandri, filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York, challenging the constitutionality of the Obama administrationā€™s ā€œcontraceptionā€ mandate.Ā  The lawsuit was filed on behalf of Priests for Life, a national, Catholic, pro-life organization based in New York.

Plainly, the Obama administration has declared war on the Bill of Rights, and in particular, it has declared war on religious freedom.Ā  In his zeal to placate his secular base on the far left, Obama has trashed the Constitution and has unwittingly united people of faith.

AFLC Co-Founder and Senior Counsel David Yerushalmi commented, ā€œAs an orthodox Jew who objects to this mandate on religious and constitutional grounds, I can say with confidence that observant Jews are as opposed to Obamaā€™s assault on religious freedom as are those in the Christian communities across the country.Ā  In this battle, we all stand as one, shoulder to shoulder, against the Obama administrationā€™s latest assault.Ā  America was founded on religious freedom.Ā  AFLC is committed to stopping Obamaā€™s war on this fundamental liberty founded in our Judeo-Christian traditions.ā€
