DENVER, CO — Cory Gardner issued the following statement after the Supreme Court released their decision in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc.:
“The court made the right decision today to protect religious liberty and the First Amendment,” Cory said. “The Food and Drug Administration now needs to move quickly to make oral contraceptives available to adults without a prescription. This easy step will make oral contraceptives both accessible and affordable for every woman who wants them. It’s common sense and it’s the right thing to do.”
Cory is a strong supporter of religious liberty and has also proposed allowing oral contraceptives to be sold over-the-counter in an effort to maximize accessibility and reduce costs for women.
