Description:  Grace College and Seminary in Indiana and Biola University in California have filed suit against the Obama administration’s mandate that forces employers, regardless of their religious or moral convictions, to provide insurance coverage for abortion-inducing drugs, sterilization, and contraception under threat of heavy penalties.

Abortion pill mandate stopped for colleges in Ind., Calif.

Friday, December 27, 2013

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Gregory S. Baylor regarding a federal court’s decision Friday in Grace Schools v. Sebelius to suspend the enforcement of the Obama administration’s abortion pill mandate against Grace College and Seminary in Indiana and Biola University in California:

“The Constitution and federal law protect people of faith and the institutions they lead from invasive and punitive government mandates. Allowing two explicitly Christian universities to operate as Christian universities is the only constitutionally correct conclusion. In light of all the legal victories against the Obama administration’s abortion pill mandate, the wisest course is for the administration to drop this unjust mandate, stop wasting taxpayer resources on these cases, and end its attacks on the First Amendment.”
