A pro-life legal ministry is joining in the argument against ObamaCare.

Life Legal Defense Foundation has filed a brief in support of a lawsuit filed against the ObamaCare mandate to provide coverage for contraception, abortifacients and sterilization. Attorney Dana Cody tells OneNewsNow their brief was filed in the case lodged by Legatus and Weingartz Supply Company.

Cody, Dana (LLDF)"And we're pointing out to the court that they're forcing employers to violate their religious beliefs to pay for drugs when there are serious health risks that are not being considered," she says.

There is research dating back several decades to review, and it has been examined extensively.

"I mean there are all sorts of complications on down the road and there's literature out there from the World Health Organization and others that call contraceptives carcinogens -- so why are we expected to fund that over our conscientious objections," Cody inquires.

Plus, the "morning-after" pill, Plan B, and the "week-after" pill, Ella, according to the attorney, can terminate a human embryo. So Cody contends people should not have to violate their religious beliefs because "a government agency says women need the drugs" -- and people should consider that when they vote for elected officials, she adds.

"We need to be sure that we're out voting for a candidate who doesn't endorse this sort of strong-arming of the taxpayers," she cautions.
