HHS Rule Won't Exempt Catholic Press
Michael Warsaw, National Catholic Register
This morning the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services issued a notice of proposed rule making on the government mandate that employee health plans must provide contraception, sterilization and abortion-inducing drugs as part of their coverage. On Feb. 9, 2012, EWTN was the first organization to file a lawsuit challenging this mandate shortly after the original rules were promulgated by the government. That lawsuit is still pending in the US District Court in Birmingham, Ala.
