March for Life Files Lawsuit Against HHS Mandate

WASHINGTON – The March for Life Education and Defense Fund filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday against the Obama administration’s HHS mandate through the legal firm, Alliance Defending Freedom. The March for Life is a non-profit, non-sectarian organization dedicated to protecting nascent human life from the moment of fertilization/conception, most notably through its annual march every January in the nation’s capital.  This lawsuit is the latest case by a non-profit organization to challenge the mandate since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled against it last month on behalf of two for-profit family businesses in Conestoga Wood Specialties v. Burwell and Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores.

The mandate forces employers, regardless of their religious or moral convictions, to provide insurance coverage for abortion-inducing drugs, sterilization, and contraception under threat of heavy financial penalties through the IRS.

March for Life President had this to say about the case: “The March for Life Education and Defense Fund was founded to protect nascent life in the womb. Our organization must be free to operate according to this belief. The government should not be allowed to force us to pay for insurance coverage that covers drugs and devices that can cause an abortion.”
