Abortion pill mandate stopped for Mo. family business


Tuesday, December 03, 2013

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Legal Counsel Dale Schowengerdt regarding the Obama administration’s agreement Tuesday to a federal court order in Randy Reed Automotive v. Sebelius that stops enforcement of the administration’s abortion pill mandate against a Missouri family-run business:
 
“The government has no business forcing citizens to choose between making a living and living free. Today’s order means that this family will be free from that type of coercion while higher courts are considering the administration’s mandate. If the government can force family business owners and job creators like this one to act contrary to their deepest convictions under the threat of fining them out of business, it is a danger to everybody.”

Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys are co-counsel in the case together with lead counsel and allied attorney Kevin M. Smith of Wichita, Kan.
