WASHINGTON (AP) -- Two evangelical Christian colleges and a Catholic-owned business are the latest to file lawsuits challenging the contraceptive coverage mandate in President Barack Obama's health care law.
The Alliance Defending Freedom has filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of Indiana's Grace College and California's Biola University.
ADF senior counsel Gregory Baylor says providing insurance coverage for birth control, sterilizations and abortion-inducing drugs would violate the schools' religious beliefs.
A separate federal lawsuit against the mandate was filed by the Thomas More Society on behalf of Triune Health Group, a suburban Chicago company whose Catholic owners say their mission is to treat each individual "with the human dignity and respect that God intended."
Last month, a Catholic-owned business in Colorado was granted a federal injunction blocking enforcement of the mandate.
