Abortion pill mandate suspended for Pa. college's employee health plan

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Gregory S. Baylor regarding a federal court’s decision Monday in Geneva College v. Sebelius to suspend the enforcement of the Obama administration’s abortion pill mandate against Geneva College’s employee health plan while the case moves forward:


“All Americans should oppose unjust laws that force people--under threat of punishment--to give up their fundamental freedoms and act contrary to their beliefs. That’s no different for Geneva College, a Christian college that simply wants to abide by the very faith it espouses and teaches. The court has done the right thing in suspending the Obamacare abortion pill mandate for Geneva’s employee health plan while this case moves forward. The government should not punish people of faith for making decisions consistent with that faith.”

Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building, non-profit legal organization that advocates for the right of people to freely live out their faith.
