Federal court rules abortion-pill mandate violates La. College’s religious freedom


Wednesday, August 13, 2014

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Kevin Theriot regarding a federal court’s decision Wednesday in Louisiana College v. Sebelius that the Obama administration’s abortion-pill mandate against Louisiana College’s employee health plan violates the school’s religious freedom:

“All Americans should oppose unjust laws that force people – under threat of punishment – to give up their freedom to live and work according to their beliefs. Louisiana College is a Christian college that simply wants to continue to operate as a Christian college as it has since its founding in 1906. The court did the right thing in striking down the Obamacare abortion-pill mandate as it applies to Louisiana College’s health insurance coverage.”

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