Grace College fights government regulated policies based on religious beliefs

SOUTH BEND, Ind. – A Michiana Christian college has fought against being forced to provide contraception or the abortion pill coverage for its employees and students. And the battle is now over.

After roughly six years, the court ruled in favor of Grace College.

The school has fought the mandate that forces them to provide the drugs based on religious beliefs.

The Trump Administration stopped fighting those cases, and the court sided with the Grace College.

ABC 57 reached out to the President of Grace College and Seminary, Dr. Bill Katip. His statement reads:

"We are heartened and encouraged by the district court's ruling in our favor, affirming that Christian institutions like ours should not be forced to abandon our religious beliefs to remain lawful. We will continue to provide excellent health care benefits to our employees that maintain our moral convictions, including the sanctity of human life."
