The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Gregory S. Baylor regarding a federal court’s decision Tuesday in Geneva College v. Sebeliusto suspend the enforcement of the Obama administration’s abortion pill mandate against Geneva College’s student health plan while the case moves forward:

“All Americans should be free to live according to their faith rather than be forced to violate their own consciences. That’s no different for Geneva College, a Christian college that simply wants to abide by the very faith it espouses and teaches. The court has done the right thing in allowing Geneva College to offer a student health plan that does not cover abortion pills. The government should not punish people of faith for making decisions consistent with that faith.”

 

 

Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building, non-profit legal organization that advocates for the right of people to freely live out their faith.
