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
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
"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.
Illinois voters will be the judge when it comes to whether one
particular member of the bench keeps his position.
