Catholic Online: Supreme Court Ruling Makes HHS Lawsuits “Monumentally Important”

Catholics might have been lulled into a false sense of security had the Supreme Court overturned significant parts of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act this morning. But today’s ruling was, if extremely dense and complicated, not ambiguous in terms of what it means for the battle for religious freedom. Catholic Online notes that the ruling means that the lawsuits against the HHS contraception mandate filed by Catholic plaintiffs—including four Catholic institutions of higher learning—are, as a result of this ruling, now even more important:
Like thousands of lawyers around the Nation, we will digest this complex, dense and surprising opinion and return with further analysis. However, it is important to remember that this Case is not the end of the legal challenges to this massive legislative scheme. The other constitutional issues which result from its implementation, such as the unconstitutional violation of the Free Exercise of religion precipitated by the HHS Mandate, have given rise to numerous lawsuits on their way to the same Court. In fact, those cases, which might have become moot had the Court struck down the Act, now become monumentally important.
