Appeals Court Rejects Liberty University's Health Reform Suit

Posted:

Lynchburg, VA - A Virginia appeals court has rejected Liberty University's attempt to overturn President Obama's health care reform law Thursday.

The three-judge panel today unanimously affirmed a lower court's ruling dismissing the suit.

Liberty claimed that the law violates the school's religious rights by requiring it to provide coverage for abortion-inducing drugs.

Liberty also claimed the requirement that individuals buy health insurance or pay a penalty is unconstitutional.
