Pro-Life Family Pays High Price

Kevin Stormans stood up for life and now is being forced to pay $140,000!

Kevin Stormans owns and operates a pharmacy that has been in his family for four generations. Because of his faith, Kevin made the choice not to sell Plan B and Ella, drugs that cause early-stage abortions - the state of Washington did not approve - and now the Storman’s need your help.

For decades, pharmacists have referred patients to other locations for an almost unlimited variety of reasons including religious objections. However, in 2007, abortion activists successfully pressured the Washington Board of Pharmacy to pass regulations that ban religiously-motivated referrals for drugs that cause early-stage abortion, while allowing pharmacies to continue referring patients for business and convenience reasons. 

Kevin, and his family, stayed true to their religious convictions, even as activists began “test shopping” the store and filing complaints. When the state launched an investigation, Kevin made the difficult choice to file a lawsuit against the state for violating his family’s First Amendment rights. And Kevin won!

But despite winning a 12-day trial, seven years later Kevin and his family are still paying the price. Not only did the state and activists appeal, but due to an unprecedented Ninth Circuit ruling, the Stormans must pay over $140,000.00 for documents related to their opponents’ role in drafting the regulations and targeting religious objectors. This is a substantial financial hardship on the Stormans family.

Kevin and his family have given years of their lives to fighting for the unborn and standing up for religious freedom in America. And now they need you to stand up for them.

Please make a donation today and support a family who made the choice to do what was right. 

By helping the Stormans today, you will have played a part in enabling them to continue their fight to protect innocent lives and to ensure that pharmacists can live according to their conscience.
