-43 Catholic Organizations File lawsuits Against Contraceptives Mandate

by Dr. D ~ May 22nd, 2012

From Catholic News Agency:

Washington D.C., May 21, 2012 / 10:39 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Forty-three Catholic dioceses and organizations across the country have announced religious liberty lawsuits against the federal government to challenge the Obama administration’s contraception mandate.

The announcement was applauded by Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan of New York, who called it “a compelling display of the unity of the Church in defense of religious liberty.”   …

The lawsuits argue that a federal mandate issued by the Obama administration violates their fundamental religious liberty. The controversial mandate will require employers to offer health insurance plans that cover contraception, sterilization and abortion-inducing drugs, even if doing so violates their consciences.

The new lawsuits join with 11 others previously filed against the HHS mandate by states, colleges, private employers and organizations throughout the U.S.

Response: This will not be the last for sure. Several Protestant organizations including the Southern Baptist Convention have also opposed the mandate and see it for what it really is- a ‘freedom of religion’ issue. Meanwhile the Obama administration has ridiculously framed the opposition as in a ‘war on women’ and the MSM has eagerly joined in that sham.

This is one of those issues that people of faith cannot ignore even if not directly affected by the mandate. In the long run if it stands, the freedom of religion will have been diminished in this country and set a precedence that all believers will come to regret. It is time to stand up now and be counted before it is too late.            *Top
