NY State Forcing Pro-life Churches to Hire Abortion Fanatics
Source: World News Daily
The Alliance Defending Freedom has filed a lawsuit against the state of New York over a new law, alleging it forces pro-life organizations, churches and others to hire abortion fanatics.
The complaint was filed in U.S. District Court in New York on behalf of the pro-life CompassCare, the National Institute of Family and Life Advocates and First Bible Baptist Church.
Defendants are Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Labor Commissioner Roberta Reardon and Attorney General Letitia James.
The issue is SB 660, which was signed into law by Cuomo on Friday. ADF said it “requires all employers – including churches, religious schools, faith-based pregnancy centers and religious nonprofits – to disavow their beliefs about abortion, contraception, and sexual morality by forcing them to hire and employ those who refuse to abide by the organization’s statements of faith.”
“CompassCare offers comprehensive information and free medical care, practical resources, and hope to women experiencing unplanned pregnancies,” said ADF Legal Counsel Denise Harle. “Every woman deserves the support she needs to make the healthiest choice for everyone involved in her pregnancy. But New York’s new law forces CompassCare to contradict its own beliefs and to employ staff who endorse abortion – a decision that harms women and ends innocent lives. No one would force PETA to hire employees that hunt on the weekends. CompassCare deserves that same courtesy and equal freedom under law.”
The complaint explains the case is a pre-enforcement federal civil rights action that challenges the constitutionality of the state’s dictation to the faith groups about their beliefs.
ADF said SB 660 is “the third in a trio of abortion-protective and abortion-advancing laws passed by the New York State Legislature this year and seeks to remedy a non-existent problem. The bill’s proponents failed to cite any documented instances of employment discrimination based on ‘reproductive health decisions’ in New York or anywhere else.”

The nepotist Andrew Cuomo said pro-life voters have no place in the state of New York.
Kudos to the Alliance Defending Freedom who is standing up against this extremist and fighting for the innocent babies.
