Transcript: Remarks by Anthony Hahn on Hobby Lobby v. Sebelius

Partial transcript of remarks by Anthony Hahn on behalf of the Hahn family, which owns Conestoga Woods, on Hobby Lobby v. Sebelius. The press briefing was held after the Supreme Court oral arguments on March 25, 2014:

Well, since my family first opened Conestoga Woods and Specialities in my dad’s garage 50 years ago, we still have to glorify God not only in the quality and craftsmanship of our products but by the principles that inspire our lives everyday.

We believe in handwork, good citizenship, and the dignity of our customers and our employees who are all created in God’s image.

We never thought we’d see a day when the government would tell our family we could no longer run our business in a way that affirms the sanctity of human life, when the government would actually force us to be complicit to the potential destruction of human life.

But sadly, that day has come. Rather than sacrifice our obedience to God, my family, the Green family, and many others have chosen to take a stand to defend life and freedom against government coercion.

We didn’t choose this fight. Our families would have been happy to just continue providing good jobs and generous health care benefits. But the government forced our hand.

We hope and pray the Supreme Court will uphold the religious freedoms of all Americans who seek to glorify God even as they go about making their living.

Thank you.
