Abortion pill mandate suspended for Pa. college's student plan


Tuesday, June 18, 2013

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

“All Americans 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 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 suspend the enforcement of the Obama administration’s abortion pill mandate for the student health plan while the case moves forward. The government should not punish people of faith for making decisions consistent with that faith.”
