The U.S. Supreme Court has struck down the Biden Administration's OSHA vaccine mandate for large employers – a mandate which included no religious exemption. ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌  ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌

In this week's Family Update we cover:

  • SCOTUS Strikes Down OSHA Vaccine Mandate
  • National Human Trafficking Awareness Day
  • A Victory in PA for Students, Parents and Religious Freedom
 

SCOTUS Strikes Down OSHA Vaccine Mandate

Yesterday's Supreme Court ruling granting a stay against the OSHA vaccine mandate constitutes a crucial safeguard that protects our liberty from an unaccountable bureaucracy going forward. The Court ruled against the OSHA vaccine mandate and in accordance with the Constitution's separation of powers. PA Family had filed an amicus brief in this case to explain how bureaucratic overreach is not only unconstitutional, but how bureaucracy often fails to account for how their actions impact religious freedom nor cares to accommodate the religious freedom of citizens.

Justice Gorsuch, who concurred in the OSHA case, captures the heart of this well. It has nothing to do with the merits of the vaccine, but about how the government is to operate. He says:

"[W]e do not impugn the intentions behind the agency's mandate. Instead, we only discharge our duty to enforce the law's demands when it comes to the question who may govern the lives of 84 million Americans. Respecting those demands may be trying in times of stress. But if this Court were to abide them only in more tranquil conditions, declarations of emergencies would never end and the liberties our Constitution's separation of powers seeks to preserve would amount to little."

National Human Trafficking Awareness Day

Tuesday, January 11 was National Human Trafficking Awareness Day.

Human Trafficking is modern day slavery, and it is a major issue plaguing our country. The International Labour Organization estimates that there are currently 40.3 million modern day slaves around the world. One in four of these victims are children and 71% are women or girls, many of whom are sexually exploited. Every year, 600,000 to 800,000 people are trafficked across international borders, and the U.S. is the most popular destination.

A Victory in PA for Students, Parents and Religious Freedom

As National Religious Freedom Day quickly approaches (Sunday, January 16th), PA Family is delighted to present this memo from Jeremy Samek, Senior Counsel for the Independence Law Center, detailing another victory for students who are having their rights infringed upon in public school. 

Read the memo here.

 

Prayer and Praise

  • In thanksgiving that religious freedom prevailed at the US Supreme Court.
  • Pray for the success of the Life amendment, that we may protect life in Pennsylvania.

If you have any prayer requests, we would be glad to pray for you. Please forward them to mail@pafamily.org
