House denies religious liberty protection for faith-based organizations

Yesterday, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 2694, the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act, 329-73. The bill requires employers to establish reasonable workplace accommodations for employees with limitations related to pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions.

During floor proceedings, Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC), Ranking Member of the Committee on Education and Labor, offered a Motion to Recommit (MTR) which would have included a longstanding provision in the 1964 Civil Rights Act that protects religious organizations’ ability to make employment decisions that are consistent with their faith.
