FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

CONGRESSMAN PITTENGER ON BIRTH CONTROL MANDATE:  ‘AT LAST, A PRESIDENT WHO STANDS FOR RELIGIOUS LIBERTY’

CHARLOTTE – Congressman Robert Pittenger (NC-09) had this reaction to the Trump Administration’s decision to no longer force employers to violate their religious beliefs regarding birth control.

“President Obama believed Americans should be forced to violate their religious beliefs to fulfill his liberal agenda.  At last, we have a President who upholds the Constitution and stands for religious liberty.  As Americans, we have the freedom to live out our faith.”

Congressman Pittenger is an active Member of both the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus and Congressional Prayer Caucus.  Earlier this week, he helped lead the fight for passage of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 36), which joins the majority of the world in banning elective late-term abortions.
