Seattle Church Being Forced by State to Cover Elective Abortions in Health Plan, Files Suit

A Seattle area church is filing a suit against the State of Washington over a mandate forcing churches to violate their pro-life religious beliefs in order to cover elective abortions in their health insurance plans. The lawsuit, filed by Cedar Park Assembly of God, will challenge the constitutionality of Washington Senate Bill 6219.

Cedar Park argues that their religious beliefs on the sanctity of human life are being violated and and a lower court has already dismissed the lawsuit.

As Big Tech continues to censor conservative publications like ours, we must increasingly rely on supporters to continue our work. Much of our work, particularly as it revolves around a biblical worldview on social and cultural issues, isn’t even allowed to be shared on social media anymore.

Like many churches worldwide, Cedar Park holds and teaches the belief that each human life is sacred from the moment of conception because God formed that life in His own likeness. ER 227 (incorporating ER 182). This religious belief is enshrined in Cedar Park’s governing documents—its Constitution and Bylaws—which explain:

Under the Imago Dei principle, all human life is sacred and made by God, in His image. Because all humans are image bearers, human life is of immeasurable worth in all of its dimensions, including pre-born babies, the aged, the physically or mentally challenged, and every other stage or condition from conception through natural death. As such, we as Christians are called to defend, protect, and value all human life. [ER 227 (incorporating ER 183).]

Abortion violates Cedar Park’s religious belief in the sanctity of human life in four ways.

According to CBN, “Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys representing the church are challenging the constitutionality of the state’s abortion coverage demands. As a result of the state’s mandate, the church’s insurance carrier inserted surgical abortion coverage directly into the church’s health plan. The insurer indicated that it would remove the offensive coverage if a court were to hold that the state law is unconstitutional.”
