Washington, D.C. - Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on the Supreme Court's rulings in the Little Sisters of the Poor case and the Our Lady of Guadalupe case:

"The Little Sisters of the Poor and other religious communities have been hounded for years by activist lawyers and politicians who demand they sacrifice their beliefs on the altar of left-wing dogma. I welcome the Supreme Court's rulings to protect religious individuals, so they can live out their faith without being forced to violate their conscience. This inquisition must now end."
