Cornyn Statement On White House Attempt to Silence Colorado Nuns

Today, I issued the following statement in response to the Department of Justice’s move to reverse U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s recent order temporarily blocking the Obamacare contraceptive mandate for religious organizations:
In a sign that the White House will stop at nothing to save its unpopular and unworkable health care law, now they’re working to silence a group of nuns in Colorado who object to the Obamacare mandate requiring coverage of contraceptive services. It’s an absurd new low for this mandate-happy Administration and an unacceptable affront to religious freedoms and fidelity. We should be concerned about the lengths President Obama will go to force his government-knows-best agenda on the American people.
