(Worthy News) - The attorneys for a church in Seattle filed a federal lawsuit on Friday against Washington state officials for forcing churches to pay for elective abortions in their health insurance.
Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) lawyers representing Cedar Park Assembly of God, challenged the constitutionality and legality of a new state mandate that requires the Seattle-area church to fund abortion if it provides its staff members access to group health insurance.
"No church should be coerced to pay for abortions, least of all a church that dedicates its ministry to protecting and celebrating life," ADF Legal Counsel Elissa Graves said in a press release. "Cedar Park believes and teaches that every human life begins at conception and is worthy of protection at every point until natural death." [ Source: CBN News (Read More...) ]
