Americans United for Life Celebrates Win for Illinois Conscience Rights in Case AUL Championed Since 2005
Date:12/11/2012

nzi, law professor at Catholic University and Senior Counsel at the Becket Fund, took over the case in 2006.

"We are delighted with the decision," said Rienzi. "The government should not have tried to force these pharmacists out of business for their religious objection to selling a small handful of drugs.  Over seven years of litigation, there was never a shred of proof that a religious objection at a pharmacy harmed anyone.  These pharmacists do a wonderful job serving their communities, and the state's decision not to appeal lets them get back to that important work."

Over the course of the litigation, AUL filed three amicus briefs in the case. Two were filed before the Illinois Supreme Court and argued that both federal and Illinois law protected pharmacists' freedom of conscience, that freedom of conscience is an historic right "steeped in the history and tradition" of America, and that the post-fertilization effect of "emergency contraception" is objectionable to many pharmacists who also should be free to exercise their First Amendment Rights of Conscience.
