Time for SCOTUS to stop 'gov't scheme' from promoting abortion

Attorneys are deciding whether they should appeal a Third Circuit Court decision that is forcing Pennsylvania Christian College to provide access to abortion pills under the HHS mandate.

Most of the appeal decisions involving religious colleges and universities and some Christian businesses have sided with the plaintiffs. But Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) attorney Matt Bowman laments that is not in the case in Geneva College vs. Burwell.

Bowman, Matt (ADF)"There've been over 30 decisions that have granted injunctions to Geneva College and other Christian ministries that simply don't want to violate their beliefs by having to be involved in these early abortion pills or other birth control items," Bowman cites. "Yet unfortunately, the judges on this panel decided that the government can violate their religious freedom."

So many of these cases are afoot that the ADF attorney thinks the U.S. Supreme Court will soon decide to take on the issue.

"I hope that the Supreme Court will correct courts like this that have decided that fundamental beliefs and the fundamental rights as Americans and as non-profit organizations can be violated by government schemes like ObamaCare in some effort to promote the abortion agenda," Bowman poses.

ADF attorney Gregory Baylor, who argued Geneva College's case before the Third Circuit, maintains, "The administration has no business punishing people of faith for making decisions consistent with that faith."
