WASHINGTON, D.C. (Worthy News)– Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Gregory S. Baylor will testify Tuesday before the U.S. House Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice chaired by Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.). Baylor will speak about the increasing attacks on religious freedom by the Obama administration.

"Americans of all faiths have reason to be concerned about the Obama administration's religious liberty record," said Baylor. "It has taken extreme positions designed to dramatically decrease religious freedom. In order to protect our first liberty–religious freedom–Congress should consider taking steps within its power to curtail these harmful activities."

One of the most significant examples ADF cites is the Obama administration's abortion pill mandate, which forces most employers, regardless of their religious or moral convictions, to provide access to abortion-inducing drugs, sterilization, and contraception under threat of heavy penalties. ADF is currently litigating numerous cases against the mandate, including Conestoga Wood Specialties v. Sebelius, in which the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to issue a ruling this month.

      Bambi, here is another cited reference with some of the Abortion President's attacks on religious freedom: http://www.adfmedia.org/files/ObamaReligiousFreedomAttacks.pdf You will notice that there are 58 sources fully cited and only 4 are from Fox News. Many of the others include far-left extremist sources such as the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, Eric Holder's Department of (In)Justice, the New York Times, NBC, CNN, ABCNews, BBC, Bloomberg, AP, CBS, Yahoo, and the actual words that came out of the Poverty President's very own mouth. Neutral-to-Left leaning sources include the Brooklyn Law Review, USA Today, the US Supreme Court, etc. These sources are definitely hostile to the conservative agenda. When your own ideologues are admitting these attacks on religious freedom, then you can bet that it is true.
