Good news for Bible publisher challenging abortion pill mandate | Alliance Defending Freedom

Court halts mandate for Tyndale House Publishers
WASHINGTON — A federal court Friday stopped enforcement of the Obama administration’s abortion pill mandate against a Bible publisher represented by attorneys with Alliance Defending Freedom. The 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.
Tyndale House Publishers, based in Carol Stream, Ill., is the world’s largest privately held Christian publisher of books, Bibles, and digital media and directs 96.5 percent of its profits to religious non-profit causes worldwide. The publisher specifically objects to covering abortifacients. The court’s order is the third nationwide against the mandate and the second obtained by Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys.
