WASHINGTON, D.C. -- U.S. Rep. Mike Michaud released the following statement today in the wake of the Supreme Court's decision in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby. The Court ruled, by a 5-4 vote, that closely held for-profit corporations are exempt from complying with the mandate in the Affordable Care Act regarding contraception based on religious beliefs.

"I'm disappointed by today's ruling and believe it is an affront to a woman's right to access basic healthcare services," said Michaud. "I have the utmost respect for religious freedom -- it is one of the defining principles of our nation. However, I believe today's ruling sets a dangerous precedent that opens up the door to discrimination in the workplace under the guise of religion. Unfortunately, this is not the direction in which we should be moving."
