Wheaton College Files Suit Against HHS Mandate

When it rains it pours.  Wheaton College, a Christian liberal arts college in Illinois, filed a federal lawsuit yesterday in the District of Columbia (the same jurisdiction in which Belmont Abbey filed) claiming that its constitutional and statutory rights are violated by the Mandate.  Causes of action include RFRA, free exercise, free speech, and an APA claim.  Wheaton’s specific complaint has to do with providing “health insurance for abortion-causing drugs, abortion procedures, and related services.”  “Wheaton College has no conscientious objection to providing coverage for non-abortion-causing contraceptive drugs and services.”  (¶ 39)
