Rep. Meadows' Statement on Trump Administration's Rollback of Contraceptive Mandate

Washington, D.C. – Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) released the following statement on the Trump Administration’s decision to roll back Obamacare’s contraception provision mandate in employer healthcare plans:

“President Trump’s decision is a major victory for people of faith and for the vital principle of religious liberty. The freedom to abide by one’s moral conscience and religious convictions is at the cornerstone of America’s foundation, and Obamacare’s mandate forcing employers to provide birth control contraceptives, including some potential abortifacients, regardless of whether or not it violated their beliefs, directly undermined those values. The conscience protections implemented today will go a long way in restoring the religious liberty safeguards that make America exceptional. I applaud President Trump’s decision and commend him for delivering on yet another campaign promise.”
