Description:  Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys represent the co-owners and leaders of Cherry Creek Mortgage Co., a family-run home loan provider. They are challenging the Obama administration’s abortion pill mandate, which 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.

Abortion pill mandate stopped again

Tuesday, September 17, 2013

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Michael J. Norton regarding a federal court’s order in Armstrong v. Sebelius that stops enforcement of the Obama administration’s abortion pill mandate against Cherry Creek Mortgage Co., a home loan provider:

“People of faith in this nation, including business owners, have the constitutionally protected freedom to live and do business according to their faith. The Obama administration should not be attempting to deprive Americans of this cherished liberty. Former U.S. Sen. Bill Armstrong together with the other members of his family and the May family who own Cherry Creek Mortgage Co. have long desired to honor God in all they do. Today’s court order allows them to continue to do that while this case proceeds so that they are not forced to act contrary to their religious convictions.”

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