Missouri Law a Rebuke to Birth Control Mandate

Ad Feedback

Missouri lawmakers have enacted new religious exemptions to President Obama's birth control coverage mandate.

Missouri is the first in the nation to directly rebuke the federal contraception mandate with a new state law.
"This bill is about protecting our religious liberties. This bill is about protecting businesses from the overreach of government," Rep. Sandy Crawford, R-Buffalo, said.

Several pending lawsuits against the federal policy claim the it infringes on religious rights.

The Missouri Catholic Conference, Missouri Right to Life and other anti-abortion groups championed the state measure.

On Wednesday, Christian-oriented Hobby Lobby Stores Inc. became the largest and first non-Catholic-owned company to sue over the mandate.
