justice court judge worthy ministries

(Worthy News) – Thirteen clergy from six faith traditions filed a lawsuit against the State of Missouri on Jan. 19, claiming that the state’s ban on abortion constitutes an imposition of a Christian belief and thus violates the separation of church and state. The clergy also stressed that the abortion ban violates their religious beliefs.

The plaintiffs are represented by the National Women’s Law Center, Americans United for Separation of Church and State, and the legal firm Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer. The clergy follow the faiths Episcopalian, Orthodox Judaism, United Church of Christ, Reform Judaism, Unitarian Universalism and United Methodist.

The lawsuit, filed in the Circuit Court of St. Louis, calls on the court to issue a “permanent injunction” against several abortion restrictions in Missouri, including an abortion ban that went into effect after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in the Dobbs decision in June 2022. [ Source: CNS News (Read More…) ]
