    (WASHINGTON, D.C.) – U.S. Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), a current member and former Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee and a lead author of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), issued the following statement today after the Supreme Court heard oral arguments on challenges to the Health and Human Services’ contraception mandate on the grounds that it violates RFRA:

    “Congress could not have been clearer in the Religious Freedom Restoration Act that the religious liberty of all Americans, individually or collectively, must be equally protected. The Obama administration has admitted that they did not even consider the impact of Obamacare on religious liberty, and their arguments today in the Supreme Court showed that they still don’t care about it. But most Americans believe in both religious liberty and equal treatment, and I expect that the Supreme Court will uphold both principles in this case.”
