Priests for Life Renews Lawsuit to Halt HHS Mandate

Priests for Life has re-filed a lawsuit against the HHS mandate this week, according to Catholic.org.

The American Freedom Law Center filed the suit this week in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

Priests for Life had filed suit last year, but the court dismissed the case saying that the Obama administration promised to issue new accommodations for religious organizations. But now that the bill is finalized and without any real accommodation, the pro-life organization states that the mandate attempts to force religious institutions to violate their religious beliefs by providing coverage for employees which includes coverage of contraceptives, abortifacients and sterilization procedures.

"Our concerns are not resolved just because the insurance carrier pays for the services that violate our Catholic faith," Father Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life explained in a release. "The fact is that Priests for Life still becomes the gateway through which people can have insurance coverage for some of the very things that our international ministry was formed to combat."

Fr. Pavone, Executive Director Janet Morana, and Director of African-American Outreach Alveda King were also named as plaintiffs.
