The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) sued a Michigan-based, Catholic-run health care chain last July for not making abortion available at their facilities.
A federal district judge dismissed the lawsuit by the ACLU on Monday dealing them a HUGE blow!
The abortion lawsuit is a part of the ACLU’s nationwide campaign to use the courts to force faith-run facilities to violate their religious beliefs.
Robert night writes at the AmericanThinker:
Writing for the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, Southern Division, Judge Gershwin A. Drain’s dismissal order in American Civil Liberties Union v. Trinity Health Corporation calls the ACLU’s claims of harm “dubious.”
“Plaintiffs have not explained what medical conditions would place their members at risk, or if any of their members have such a condition that would place them at risk,” wrote Judge Drain, a 2012 appointee of President Obama.
“They have only alleged that one of their members was pregnant at the time the claim was filed, and that other members will likely become pregnant in the future.” Read the full article.
The Obama administration has attempted, through ObamaCare, to force companies like the Little Sisters of the Poor, Hobby Lobby, and other faith-based groups to provide access to abortion.
They have lost this battle, and have been losing others!
Last year, SCOTUS ruled that Hobby Lobby and other businesses with religious objections could opt-out of the ObamaCare federal contraceptive mandate.
Texas and other states have been successful in fighting abortion mills like Planned Parenthood by requiring them to have..imagine this…higher standards, equivalent to other medical facilities.
The abortion fight has taken a strong turn upwards as American public opinion has been turning against the practice.
Polls since the 80’s show a drastic swing from 56% of the country being Pro-Abortion to today where 55% of Americans Want All or Most Abortions Made Illegal.
The pro-abortion movement is also reeling from the disclosure of multiple undercover Planned Parenthood videos exposing the horrific atrocities involved with illegally selling baby parts.
They are also facing the survivors of botched abortions testifying in front of Congress.
As Dr. Susan Berry so aptly states in Breitbart:
In 37 consecutive polls performed throughout the past 21 years on the issue of abortion, Gallup has found that a majority of Americans surveyed say abortion should be illegal in all or most cases.
Take that Planned Parenthood!
