New Hampshire House condemns Obama mandate
February 23, 2012
The lower house of New Hampshire’s state legislature has approved a resolution calling upon the Obama administration to revoke the HHS contraceptive mandate.
By a vote of 227- 121, the New Hampshire House of Representatives became the first legislative body in the US to condemn the Obama mandate. House speaker William O’Brien said that the resolution was not a statement on contraception or on the merits of Catholic teaching, but “stands up for our religious institutions that have long-held principles and teachings under assault by a president and his ideology that seeks not merely to reject, but to tear down our liberties.”
