BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
Gov. Bobby Jindal issued a statement agreeing with the US Supreme Court shortly after the announcement of the ruling that corporations are allowed to opt out of the health law requirement that they cover contraceptives for women.
Jindal issued the following response on the Hobby Lobby decision:
"With today's Hobby Lobby decision rejecting the arguments of President Obama's administration and affirming the rights of families to conduct their business according to their faith, the Supreme Court formally recognized what the overwhelming majority of Americans already know to be true: that religious liberty is a good thing.
Our country was founded by individuals who wanted to live according to their faith every day of their lives, and not merely have their faith confined to the pew. For those of us who believe, as the Green family does, in an Almighty God who created the universe and loves us personally, our faith guides us every day: in what we will do, and in what we will not do.
