Statement from the Press Secretary Regarding Supreme Court Ruling on Religious Liberty

白宫对最高法院关于宗教自由的裁决的声明

Issued on: July 8, 2020

发布日期:2020年7月8日

Today’s Supreme Court ruling is a big win for religious freedom and freedom of conscience. Almost a decade ago, the Obama administration attempted to force employers, including religious nonprofits like the Little Sisters of the Poor, an order of nuns, to provide contraceptive coverage to their employees, in violation of their religious beliefs. Twice before in this ongoing saga, the Supreme Court has blocked these overly rigid and misguided efforts and sided with religious freedom. Today, it has once again vindicated the conscience rights of people of faith.

今天最高法院的裁决是宗教自由和良心自由的重大胜利。大约十年前,奥巴马政府试图强迫雇主其中包括非营利组织,比如 “贫穷的小姐妹”,是修女的命令,向雇员提供避孕保险。这项命令是违反宗教信仰的。在这场不断上演的事件中,最高法院已经两次阻止了这些过于僵化和误导的努力,并站在支持宗教自由的一边。今天,它再次彰显了信仰者的良知权。

Since Day One, the Trump Administration has sought to lift burdens on religious exercise for people of all faiths. As the Supreme Court has previously stated, protecting the ability of people to worship and live according to the dictates of their conscience is part of “the best of our traditions.” The Court’s decision today carries forward that noble tradition. This Administration will continue working to protect healthcare, including contraceptive healthcare, for the American people. Unlike the last administration, however, we have the courage of our convictions: We are allowing women who lack access to contraceptive coverage because of their employer’s religious beliefs or moral convictions to more easily access such care through the Title X program at little to no cost. Ensuring that women receive the healthcare they need does not require banishing religious groups that refuse.

自第一天起,川普政府就一直在努力为所有信仰者们减轻宗教活动负担。正如最高法院之前所指,保护人们按照自己良心的指引进行崇拜和行动的能力,“是我们最好的传统”的一部分。最高法院今天的裁决继承了这一崇高的传统。本届政府将为保护美国人民的医疗保健,包括避孕保险而继续努力。然而,与上届政府不同之处,我们有坚定信念的勇气:我们允许那些因受到雇主的宗教信仰和道德信念不同而无法获得避孕保险的妇女们,通过Title X计画付费很少或免费获得这种保健。确保妇女们在获取她们所需要的医疗保健时,无须因拒绝放弃自己的宗教信仰作为交换条件而被社会所抛弃。
