JEFFERSON CITY • Missouri’s College of the Ozarks has filed a federal lawsuit challenging a provision of the Affordable Care Act that would require its employee health plan to cover abortion services and certain types of contraception, including the morning-after pill.

Leaders of the Presbyterian liberal arts college located near Branson say the mandate violates the school’s institutional religious beliefs.

“The mandate chills the college's religious exercise by exposing the college to substantial fines for its religious beliefs and exercise of those beliefs,” the lawsuit states. “The mandate's required provision of insurance coverage for education and counseling concerning elective abortions and abortifacient drugs compels the college to speak in a manner contrary to its religious beliefs.”

I've known a number of graduates from that school, and it's among the BEST at real, classical, liberal arts, in that you get a well rounded education, none of this "Feminist Basket Weaving" crap. Math, sciences, philosophy, history and civics. It actually prepares its graduates for life, and any can hold an intelligent conversation on nearly any topic.

When I attended C of O (at the time S of O) as an undergrad, I knew of several weavers who worked on campus making rugs, tapestries, and such. They were affiliated with the Mill.

At the same time, they do offer an exceptional academic opportunity for which my husband and I will be forever grateful.

Go Bobcats!
