Win for Religious Freedom!

From LifeNews.com:

A federal court today stopped enforcement of the Obama administration’s abortion pill mandate against a Bible publisher which filed a lawsuit against it.

The mandate has generated massive opposition from pro-life groups because it 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.

The Obama administration opposed the order, arguing that Tyndale House Publishers isn’t religious enough for an exemption from the mandate, a component of ObamaCare 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.

Good news for Alliance Defending Freedom, the main attorneys on the case, who now have their second win on this issue. However, this ruling does not yet protect all religious institutions by striking down this mandate. Contact your US Representative and US Senator about this issue and ask them to support religious freedom!
