Congress Must Overturn DC’s Assault on Religious Liberty

Washington — Over the weekend, Mayor Muriel Bowser signed two pieces of legislation that violate the religious liberty of organizations and employers in the District of Columbia: The Reproductive Health Non-Discrimination Act and the Human Rights Amendment Act.  Heritage Action released the following statement from chief executive officer Michael A. Needham:

“Religious liberty is a fundamental tenet upon which the country was built.  The D.C. government is forcing religious organizations and employers to choose between upholding their beliefs or complying with a coercive government regulation that requires them to violate their beliefs and missions.  Heritage Action urges Congress to use its constitutional authority to disapprove of these intrusive and flawed laws.”
