EMC Frontline web pageA federal lawsuit has been filed against New York City and the state, too, over their effort to include abortion in civil rights protections.

Thomas More Society is representing Expectant Mother Care and EMC Frontline, which are challenging the phrase “reproductive health decision” that is included in employment protections such as race, sex, and religion.

Thomas More attorney Tim Belz tells OneNewsNow the phrase is really just another term for abortion meaning EMC Frontline, which fights abortions in The Big Apple, would be forced to hire women who have had abortions.

Such a legal demand is especially ironic and disheartening for a New York City-based pro-life group since their city of nine million leads the U.S. in abortions. 

U.S. flag and Statue of LibertyBelz gives the example of a potential employee who discloses at the job interview that she “proudly” had an abortion and wants to counsel other women to do the same at the pro-life pregnancy center.

Thomas More’s lawsuit accuses the city and state of violating the 1st Amendment and 14th Amendment. 

"It's a fundamental violation of the First Amendment promise that you have the right to expressive association,” the attorney argues.

Thomas More filed a similar lawsuit against the City of St. Louis and won that case.
