Geneva Files Lawsuit

Geneva College is committed to acting in a manner consistent with our deeply held Christian beliefs. Accordingly, we filed a federal lawsuit on Tuesday, February 21, 2012 against the Obama administration’s unconstitutional mandate that religious employers provide insurance coverage for abortion-inducing drugs to employees and students regardless of religious or moral objections.

Supported by the Alliance Defense Fund, we are pursuing this legal action to protect our ability to have health insurance coverage that does not violate our understanding of God-honoring behavior. We believe that this mandate is a violation of the freedoms of religion and free speech guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States and affirming legislation such as the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Our suit is not directed at preventative contraception, but is about protecting us and other religious organizations from government mandates that require us to act against our convictions.

Please join us by praying for this effort, and that hearts will be turned toward the protection of life

“And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” Colossians 3:17
