Court reinstates Christian college’s suit against abortion pill mandate


Thursday, May 09, 2013

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Gregory S. Baylor regarding a federal court’s decision Wednesday to reinstate the lawsuit of Geneva College in Pennsylvania against the Obama administration’s abortion pill mandate:

“All Americans, including job creators and providers, should be free to live according to their faith rather than be forced into violating their own consciences. That’s no different for Geneva College, a Christian-run college that simply wants to abide by the very faith it espouses and teaches. The court has done the right thing in allowing Geneva College to remain in this lawsuit together with Seneca Hardwood Lumber Co. to ensure that the government doesn’t punish people of faith for making decisions consistent with that faith.”
