2 Protestant colleges file suit against HHS mandate

Catholic World News - October 28, 2013

Two Protestant colleges – Dordt College, a Christian Reformed college in Iowa, and Cornerstone University, a non-denominational Christian college in Michigan – have filed suit against the HHS mandate’s requirement to provide contraceptives that also act as abortifacients.

“This filing is first and foremost an effort to preserve and protect our religious freedom as guaranteed by the First Amendment,” said Joseph Stonewell, president of Cornerstone University, as quoted in an MLive Media Group report. “Given our conviction that life begins at conception and our commitment to the sanctity of life, we find the mandate to provide our faculty, staff and students with insurance that provides access to abortion-inducing prescriptions unacceptable.”
