Colo. Civil Rights Commission issues inconsistent cake artist decisions

    Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Legal Counsel Jeremy Tedesco: “We commend the commission for reaching the right conclusion that these cake artists should not be forced to violate their conscience, but clearly the commission should have done the same for Jack Phillips. The commission found that these three cake artists have the freedom to decline creating unique cake creations because the artists found the requests offensive, but all Americans should be alarmed that the same commission determined that Jack doesn’t have that same freedom. Like the other bakers, Jack happily serves all people but declines to use his artistic talents to create cakes that violate his conscience. The commission’s inconsistent rulings mean that the owners of these three cake shops may run them according to their beliefs, while Jack cannot. He risks losing his life-long business altogether if he continues to run it consistent with his faith. Such blatant religious discrimination has no place in our society.”

University of Hawaii recruits 14-year-olds for late-term abortion experiments

    Hawai’i Free Press: “While Hawai’i law permits a private hospital to provide ‘medical care and services’ to a pregnant minor without a parent’s consent, federal regulations on medical experimentation do require parental consent to medical experimentation on an underage patient. There may also be some doubt whether a medical experiment that may offer no medical benefit could truly be considered “medical care” under the deemed consent law, raising a question whether the clinical trial could violate state law as well as federal law if parental consent is not obtained. I do find it curious that the published notice on this trial states that the researchers will conduct ‘[n]o additional follow-up after discharge home.’”

    – Stephen Aden, Senior Counsel/Director, Center for Life Alliances, Alliance Defending Freedom, April 1, 2015
