Abortion pill mandate stopped for four Okla. universities


Monday, December 23, 2013

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Gregory S. Baylor regarding a federal court’s decision Monday in Southern Nazarene University v. Sebelius to suspend the enforcement of the Obama administration’s abortion pill mandate against four Christian universities in Oklahoma:

“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 these Christian colleges, which simply want to abide by the very faith they espouse and teach. The court has rightfully suspended the Obamacare abortion pill mandate against these schools while their 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.
