Arizona law grants religious exemption from Obamacare contraception-abortion mandate

Bill: HB2625 (PDF)

Sponsored by Rep. Debbie Lesko, and signed into law by Gov. Jan Brewer, HB2625 (Chapter 337) guarantees religious freedom for religious insurers, employers, or individuals who have religious objections to coverage of contraception or abortifacients. The amendment codifies a First Amendment religious exemption ignored by the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. “Obamacare”).
