Suing Obama Administration Over Contraceptives

Suing Obama over contraceptives isn’t just for Catholics any more.

Benedictine College’s student newspaper editor Abigail Wilson reports in Fox’s “College fix” that Colorado Christian University has joined the fray.

She interviewed Ron Benton at the Denver area interdenominational Christian school. Colorado Christian University “is not opposed to contraceptives,” Benton told her. “In fact, our current health plan includes birth control pharmaceuticals. However, we do not believe [Plan B and Ella] are contraceptives but pharmaceuticals that are disguised as a means to abort a child.”

Here’s coverage at The College Fix and National Review.
