A federal judge in Virginia threw out a case brought by Liberty University that claimed the health care reform law is unconstitutional and would allow the religious institution’s insurance payments to cover abortions.
The White House quickly trumpeted the suit’s dismissal as a sign that the health care law will survive the many legal challenges it faces.
“The judge’s ruling today only underscores the importance of the law’s individual responsibility provision,” Stephanie Cutter, assistant for special projects, wrote in a White House blog post Tuesday.
