One of the first abortion rulings has come down from the Supreme Court and it is not going to sit well with the left.
The Court has ordered a New York court to reconsider a recent decision.
That decision was to force a Catholic diocese to cover the costs of abortion.
It seems as though religious freedoms are becoming a thing of the past with this administration.
We are seeing that play out in the lack of approval for religious reasons on exemptions for the vaccine mandate.
The Court, however, still seems to be following the Constitution, at least some of the time.
In this case, the Court sent a case back to a lower court regarding its decision to force employers to cover the costs of abortions.
The 2017 mandate, according to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany, violates the First Amendment.
The Court seemed to agree, vacating the lower court ruling on Monday and ordering the Court to rehear the case.
This is not an overturning of the case, but it is a pretty good sign of how the Court would rule if it comes back to them again with the same decision.
Bishop Edward B. Scharfenberger stated, “We are gratified and grateful that the Supreme Court has recognized the serious constitutional concerns over New York State’s heavy-handed abortion mandate on religious employers.
“We are confident that now that the Court has ordered the case remanded for reconsideration in light of last year’s Fulton v. Philadelphia decision, the unconstitutional regulatory action taken by New York State will ultimately be completely overturned as incompatible with our country’s First Amendment guarantee of religious liberty.”
Mother Miriam of the Sisterhood of Saint Mary added, “We’re grateful that the Supreme Court has taken action in our case and hopeful that, this time around, the New York Court of Appeals will preserve our ability to serve and encourage our neighbors.”
We should note, Justices Gorsuch, Alito, and Thomas were all ready to hear the case now, but they had to defer to the majority ruling.
