A federal judge in Louisiana on Wednesday gave a Baptist college an exemption from the Obama administrations HHS Contraceptive/Abortifacient Mandate. Here’s the story from the CItizenLink:

In a landmark decision, a federal district court on Wednesday said a Christian college in Louisiana is exempt from complying with the HHS mandate. It requires most businesses and nonprofits to offer potential abortion-inducing drugs in employee health plans.

Louisiana College is a Baptist school in Pineville. Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) filed suit on behalf of the school in 2012. The following year, a U.S. District Court in Louisiana temporarily halted the mandate.

Response: This is a huge development. Hundreds of Christian colleges, organizations, and institutions have sued the Obama HHS Department over the forced Mandate to provide abortifacients. Many have receive temporary injunctions but this ruling goes beyond and provides Louisiana College with a real exemption.

The Department of Justice will probably appeal the case and take it to the next level but this could be just the beginning and finally the religious rights of Christian organizations will be properly recognized.

Recently the Supreme Court ruled in favor of two for profit businesses (Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties) in their lawsuits against the HHS Mandate. There should be even more reasons for the courts to find in favor of Christian institutions in their continuing pursuit of religious freedom and conscience.               *Top
