WASHINGTON (BP, TAB) — Russell Moore, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, joined seven other officials whose organizations have offices in America’s capital in an open statement defying the Reproductive Health Non-discrimination Amendment Act (RHNDA). The signers issued the statement May 4 after Congress failed to prevent the D.C. law from going into effect.
RHNDA will prohibit an employer from discriminating against an employee or a dependent on the basis of that person’s “reproductive health” decisions, which could include abortion. The measure seeks to force the pro-life organizations to act in contradiction to their religious beliefs and purpose by supporting those who oppose their teachings on the sanctity of all human life.
