Pro-Life Organizations Suing New York for Forcing them to Hire Pro-Abortion Employees

Three pro-life organizations have announced that they will be working with Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) to fight new legislation forcing New York employers to accept pro-abortion employees.

The newly-signed law forbids employers from hiring or firing employees based on their "reproductive health decision-making" and includes no religious exemptions.

The organizations teaming up with ADF include the National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA), First Bible Baptist Church in Hilton, and the pro-life pregnancy care service CompassCare according to the Catholic News Agency.

CompassCare released a statement on its decision to pursue legal action against the state of New York.
“This law is a trifecta of constitutional violations, hindering freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and freedom of association. To be clear, obeying this law would force CompassCare to violate its mission and beliefs. CompassCare cannot in good conscience obey this law. We sue not because we want to but because it is needed to ensure pro-life Christians can continue expressing their convictions publicly and peaceably.”
