Det är inte bara Katolikerna som underkänner Obamas reform, Obamacare. Nu när fler förstår vad det innebär höjs fler röster.
Nu har Baptisterna blockerat reformen och tagit strid för religionsfrihet i USA och vunnit.
A federal judge in Oklahoma City has granted an injunction to block an Obamacare mandate that religion-based groups provide insurance allowing access to the morning after pill and other contraceptives.
Friday’s preliminary injunction came in favor of a class-action lawsuit that 187 ministries filed in October, reports Fox News. The group insurance provides benefits through GuideStone Financial Resources, which operates through the Southern Baptist Convention.
The ministries objected to providing four of 20 different contraceptives approved by the Food and Drug Administration, including both the morning-after and week-after pills, which opponents believe may cause early abortions.
“This is an overwhelming victory for GuideStone and the nearly 200 plaintiffs in this class-action lawsuit,” said Adele Keim, a lawyer for GuideStone and the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, which helped represent the ministries. “Today’s ruling will allow hundreds of Baptist ministries to continue preaching the Gospel and serving the poor … without laboring under the threat of massive fines.”
