Westminster Seminary Joins HHS Mandate Suit

Ad Feedback

Westminster Theological Seminary in Pennsylvania filed a lawsuit against the contraception mandate in Obamacare.

The suit, filed March 8, challenges the requirement forcing employers to provide health insurance for drugs that can induce abortions.

"This latest development is more evidence that this unconstitutional mandate violates the core beliefs of religious groups across the theological spectrum," Diana Verm, counsel for the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, said.

"We applaud Westminster Theological Seminary's brave stand for its conscience, and we welcome it in the fight against government intrusion into its beliefs," she said.

The Becket Fund represents East Texas Baptist University, Houston Baptist University, Hobby Lobby, Ave Maria University, Belmont Abbey College, Colorado Christian University, EWTN, and Wheaton College.

Westminster Theological Seminary, which is represented by Houston litigator Ken Wynne, moved to intervene in the Becket Fund’s lawsuit on behalf of East Texas Baptist University and Houston Baptist University.

There are 49 separate lawsuits challenging the HHS mandate.
