Maternity home denied request to intervene in MO religious liberty lawsuit

Our Lady's Inn, a maternity home for women facing unplanned pregnancies, has been denied a request to intervene in a lawsuit that seeks to stop Missouri's religious liberty law.

Last December, the Missouri Insurance Coalition filed a lawsuit seeking to stop enforcement of the law, which ensures that no one is forced to pay for abortion drugs and similar items in their health insurance if it violates their religious beliefs. The law, known as SB 749, initially was vetoed by Gov. Jay Nixon, but later overturned by the Missouri General Assembly in a special session last September.
