Bible Publisher Challenges Abortion Drug Mandate

Ad Feedback

Tyndale House Publishers is challenging the controversial Obamacare birth control mandate, arguing that the administration's strict exemption excludes most religious companies.

The Bible publishing group appeared in court Friday in the nation's capital, represented by Alliance Defending Freedom. They object to the requirement that it provide free insurance coverage for drugs that cause abortions.

They argued that even though the federal government allows for a religious exemption, the administration interprets it so strictly, even some of the most religious companies aren't covered.

"For the government to say that a Bible publisher is not religious is alarming," ADF Attorney Matt Bowman said. "It demonstrates how clearly the Obama administration is willing to disregard the Constitution's protection of religious freedom to achieve certain political purposes."

The foundation that owns Tyndale donates 96.5 percent of its profits to religious causes around the world.

The publishing company could face an uphill battle as it is currently subject to the mandate. The Obama administration has ruled that for-profit corporations are "non-religious" and therefore non-exempt.
