ACLU defends Amish lack of plumbing as religious freedom

MORENCI, Mich. (AP) — The American Civil Liberties Union is defending 14 Amish families in southern Michigan in a dispute with a county health department over outhouses and plumbing.

The Lenawee County Health Department has filed lawsuits and asked a judge to order owners to comply with county waste disposal rules or face demolition of their properties.

The ACLU says the county is violating religious freedoms guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.

Lawyers say there’s no health threat.
