CASEGrote Industries v. Burwell

Client Story


Share this page
Summary
Grote Industries is a family-run auto lighting company and job provider based in Madison, Ind. The Obama administration’s abortion pill mandate forces employers, regardless of their religious or moral convictions, to provide insurance coverage for abortion-inducing drugs and devices, sterilization, and contraception under threat of heavy penalties. This coercive mandate violates Grote’s constitutionally protected freedom of religion and conscience; therefore, in 2012, Alliance Defending Freedom filed suit on behalf of the company and the family that owns it.
