State forcing pro-life churches to hire abortion fanatics
Law challenged for ‘attempt to meddle in the affairs of religious organizations’
The Alliance Defending Freedom has filed a lawsuit against the state of New York over a new law, alleging it forces pro-life organizations, churches and others to hire abortion fanatics.
The complaint was filed in U.S. District Court in New York on behalf of the pro-life CompassCare, the National Institute of Family and Life Advocates and First Bible Baptist Church.
Defendants are Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Labor Commissioner Roberta Reardon and Attorney General Letitia James.
The issue is SB 660, which was signed into law by Cuomo on Friday. ADF said it “requires all employers – including churches, religious schools, faith-based pregnancy centers and religious nonprofits – to disavow their beliefs about abortion, contraception, and sexual morality by forcing them to hire and employ whose who refuse to abide by the organization’s statements of faith.”
