A pastor and a nurse want Congress to pass legislation that would allow Americans the freedom to opt out of the abortion process.
Chris Lewis, lead pastor of Foothill Church in Glendora, California, says his congregation doesn’t want to be coerced into covering abortions on employee health insurance plans.
But that is exactly what the state of California is doing, Lewis told The Daily Signal in a phone interview.
Lewis said it is “shocking” that the state Department of Managed Health Care would force his 1,000-member church, against its deeply held religious convictions, to cover abortion in the health plans of roughly 100 employees.
