Chester County college sues government over Obamacare contraception mandate


A Christian college based in Chester County has filed a federal suit with the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against members of the executive branch, saying that the contraception mandate in the Affordable Care Act violates its First Amendment right to freely exercise its religious beliefs.

Representatives of Valley Forge Christian College of the Assemblies of God challenge the mandate that requires employers to provide insurance plans that include coverage for contraception medications and devices. The college claims that paying for certain products that harm a fertilized human egg, such as Plan B contraceptives, violates its sincerely held religious beliefs.


I’m glad that folks are standing up for religious freedom!


Glad they are taking a stand.
