+  Court dismisses ACLU suit that sought to force Catholic hospital, staff to commit abortions

  • Description: "A federal court Monday threw out an American Civil Liberties Union lawsuit that sought to force a Catholic hospital system and its staff to commit abortions regardless of their religious and pro-life objections. Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys represent the Catholic Medical Association, the Christian Medical and Dental Associations, and the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists, which the court allowed on March 10 to intervene in the case in defense of Trinity Health Corporation. Trinity Health operates 90 hospitals in 21 states."
  • Segment Guests:
    • Matt Bowman
      Senior Counsel , Alliance Defending Freedom

      Since joining ADF in 2006, Bowman has focused his legal efforts on promoting a culture of life. He has led the fight against the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services mandate that forces employers to provide employees with healthcare coverage that includes early abortion items and birth control in violation of their religious convictions. He obtained the first preliminary injunction against that mandate in July 2012 for a Colorado family business in Newland v. Sebelius. He also defends the free speech of pro-life pregnancy centers and sidewalk advocates, including obtaining a victory against a law targeting pro-life centers in Centro Tepeyac v. Montgomery County, Maryland.
