March for Life Education and Defense Fund v. California

Court: Trial Court

Status: Active

Last Updated: 12/15/2020

Overview

Summary

On the same day that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services issued its final interim rule protecting nonprofit religious and pro-life organizations from the Obama-era abortion-pill mandate, the state of California filed suit to challenge the rule. The mandate forces employers, regardless of their moral convictions, to provide insurance coverage for abortion-inducing drugs under threat of heavy financial penalties.
