Bible publisher gets good news on ObamaCare mandate

A federal judge has blocked enforcement of the Health and Human Services mandate to provide free insurance coverage of abortion-causing pills in ObamaCare.

Bible publisher Tyndale House, which is owned by a foundation and donates most of its profits to faith causes worldwide, filed the lawsuit. The Obama administration had argued Tyndale House Publishers was not religious enough for an exemption from the mandate.

Alliance Defending Freedom attorney Matt Bowman tells OneNewsNow that Bible publishers should be free to do business according to the book they publish.

"The court has done the right thing in halting this mandate while our lawsuit moves forward," he states. The court's order is the third nationwide against the mandate and the second obtained by ADF attorneys.

"For the government to claim that a Bible publisher cannot exercise religion is startling," Bowman continues. "It shows how clearly the Obama administration is willing to disregard Constitutional protections for religious freedom in order to advance the political interests of the abortion movement."

The component of ObamaCare in question forces employers, regardless of their religious or moral convictions, to provide insurance for abortion-inducing drugs and sterilization under threat of heavy penalties.
