Description:  Trijicon manufactures advanced riflescopes and sights for tactical and sporting applications. The members of the Bindon family who own and operate Trijicon have a long history of running it in accordance with their Christian beliefs. As part of its benefits program, Trijicon has historically offered healthcare insurance in a way that is consistent with its life-affirming company values and therefore does not include coverage for abortion and abortion-related services. Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys represent Trijicon in a federal lawsuit against the Obama administration’s abortion pill mandate, a component of Obamacare that 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.

Court puts hold on abortion pill mandate for Mich. family business

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Legal Counsel Matt Bowman regarding Wednesday’s federal court order in Trijicon v. Sebelius which temporarily blocks enforcement of the Obama administration’s abortion pill mandate against a Michigan-based family-run business and puts a hold on the case until another similar case is decided:

“All Americans, including those who run family businesses, should be free to honor God and live according to their consciences whether they are at home, church, or the workplace. The court order in this case is consistent with what the vast majority of courts have found so far--that the abortion pill mandate is an excessive burden on the constitutionally protected religious freedom that is guaranteed to all Americans.”

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