The U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals heard oral arguments Monday on behalf of four Oklahoma Christian universities on why they should be exempt from the HHS abortion-pill mandate. 

Alliance Defending Freedom attorney Greg Baylor, who made the arguments, says the mandate forces religious organizations to give up their fundamental beliefs.

The four universities involved in the case are Southern Nazarene, Oklahoma Wesleyan, Oklahoma Baptist and Mid-America Christian Universities.

Baylor, Gregory (ADF)Now that the Republicans will soon control the U.S. House and U.S. Senate, they could change the law.

"There's obviously grave concern that President Obama would never sign a bill that provided for relief or protection for religious freedom," Baylor tells OneNewsNow.

Baylor observes that the likely way the Obama administration's abortion-pill mandate will be resolved is by the U.S. Supreme Court. Lower courts are reaching different conclusions, he says, making a high court decision likely in the future.
