Pastor Jack Hibbs is strongly opposed to the state mandate which requires all employers to cover abortion procedures in employee health plans and his church has joined others to challenge the mandate.

“I felt violated; I felt forced. I love America and I love American history, and I have a lot of invested interest in defending the unborn,” he said to  LiveActionNews
Hibbs said he will stop at nothing to maintain his biblical stance on abortion. 
“We will take this to the point of being jailed, if necessary, being arrested, if necessary – whatever it takes,” he said. “I cannot violate my biblical worldview.  Once I have to do that, I no longer live in the United States our founding fathers gave me.” 
Calvary Chapel Chino Hills is now joined with the churcheshiring Alliance Defending Freedom and Life Legal Defense Foundation to argue that the state mandate is a violation of their religious freedom. 

“The need to remedy this discrimination is urgent because it is immediately depriving Complainants of a health plan that omits elective abortions,” the complaint reads.  

Hibbs said,  “God is the engineer of life – he’s the giver of life.  I cannot think of a human being more defenseless than an unborn baby.”
