Religious Freedom on the Line
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) – the agency responsible for enforcing discrimination laws – has finally issued its rules surrounding the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PWFA).
And it was no surprise for us to discover that these rules will force pro-life employers to violate their conscience by accommodating workers’ abortions.
If you employ more than 15 people, you are now responsible for providing “reasonable accommodations” for “pregnancy-related medical conditions.”
And yes, that includes “abortion leave.”
It also includes fertility treatments such as in vitro fertilization, a practice condemned by the Catholic Church because it involves the destruction of unborn human lives in a lab.
Defenders of the new rules say the abortion provisions won’t apply to religious employers “with respect to the employment of individuals of a particular religion.”
Translation: A Catholic employer will not have to accommodate the abortions or IVF procedures of its Catholic workers, but Catholic employers COULD have to cover these evils for non-Catholic employees.
Under these regulations, Protestants will be dissuaded from hiring Catholics, Catholics from hiring Muslims, Muslims from hiring Jews, etc.
It’s divisive. It’s a threat to religious freedom. And it’s an attack on Catholic Americans.
Donate today to help us expose this radical pro-abortion policy of the Biden administration and fight for conscience protections for all Americans of faith.
