Our Lady’s Inn, a maternity home in St. Louis,is seeking to intervene in the lawsuit challenging SB 749, the religious liberty law passed by the Missouri General Assembly last fall.
In its motion to intervene, Our Lady’s Inn indicates that its conscience rights and the conscience rights of its employees are being violated because they are being forced to pay for abortion drugs, sterilizations, and contraceptives despite their religious and moral objections.
Our Lady’s Inn sought to intervene in the lawsuit in February, but was denied. The maternity home is being represented by Attorney Tim Belz, an attorney from St. Louis who is nationally known for his experience in religious liberty litigation
As we reported last week, Attorney General Chris Koster has refused to appeal the ruling striking down the religious liberty law.
