STUDENTS REACT AS RELIGIOUS LIBERTY, CONSCIENCE PROTECTIONS PLACED AT RISK

Students at Catholic universities across the nations are banding together with students at Belmont Abbey College in a stand for religious liberty and conscience rights. Students from the University of Dallas, Franciscan University of Steubenville, De Sales University and Catholic University of America are fighting back as one private school in North Carolina is being forced to fund contraception and chemical abortion under the Obama administration’s Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The EEOC ignited the First Amendment firestorm when it ruled Belmont Abbey College must include coverage for contraception in its employee health insurance plan. Hormonal contraceptives often function as abortifacients.
