Washington, D.C.– On October 11, 2013, the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty together with the national law firm Locke Lord LLP filed a class-action lawsuit on behalf of three non-profit religious organizations who cannot comply with the federal government's mandate that they provide employees with free access to abortion-inducing drugs and devices:
"We teach our students what it means to think biblically about all areas of life," said Dr. Emir Caner, President of Truett-McConnell. "We can't tell them that human life is sacred from the time of conception and then turn around and offer health benefits that are inextricably linked to providing abortion-causing drugs. Southern Baptists have a long history of standing up to government coercion in matters of conscience—it's a tradition we're honored to join."
