A former Colorado Senator from the Reagan era who has already been a party to one lawsuit against Obamacare’s abortion mandate has filed a second lawsuit, this time over a home mortgage company that he owns.
Bill Armstrong, a Colorado senator from 1979-1991, along with members of his and another family co-own the Cherry Creek Mortgage Co., based in Greenwood Village. The company currently employs 730 people in 27 states. Each of the owners, including Armstrong are evangelical Christians who object to being forced to provide insurance coverage for abortion inducing drugs and devices.
“Americans should be free to honor God and live according to their consciences in their homes, churches, and businesses,” said Senior Counsel Michael Norton with the Alliance Defending Freedom, who is representing Armstrong. “Senator Armstrong believed in that constitutional principle when he served in the U.S. Senate, and he believes in that principle today. He, his fellow co-owners, and family members that work with him believe firmly that no one should be forced to choose between their faith and their job.”
