Catholic Groups Sue To Stop Obama's Contraceptive Mandate
Roman Catholic institutions across the country filed a wave of federal lawsuits today to stop enforcement of the ObamaCare mandate that religious institutions not qualifying for exemptions as being "sufficiently religious" must cover -- that is, pay for -- contraceptive services for employees, in violation of 2,000 years of Roman Catholic doctrine.
The New York Archdiocese and the University of Notre Dame are among the dozens of institutions which filed separate, but coordinated, lawsuits today.
I have written before that the mandate is being driven by a distinctly anti-religious, if not targeted anti-Catholic agenda that seeks to coerce a change in Church doctrine by imposing overt and covert punishments upon Catholic institutions which do not comply with the mandate. Such actions compromise a core constitutional right (that of freedom of religion) under the First Amendment.
Such targeted attacks upon the Catholic Church, in particular, included Georgetown Law School student Sandra Fluke testifying in support of the contraceptive mandate before an ad hoc Congressional committee that many female students were suffering because their contraceptives were not subsidized by their university health plans -- meaning, other students. Fluke's comments drew strong criticism from many quarters including this writer and Rush Limbaugh, whose show was boycotted by several dozen advertisers after he sharply rebuked her.
