Judge Orders Stay on HHS Mandate for Univ. of St. Francis

District Judge Jon Deguilio, an Obama appointee, granted temporary relief from the HHS contraceptive mandate to the University of St. Francis in Fort Wayne, Ind., while its lawsuit proceeds, according to The Indianapolis Star.

The mandate, which requires Catholic institutions to facilitate coverage for abortifacients, contraceptives and sterilization procedures, went into effect on January 1st.

The injunction also protects the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend, the diocesan Catholic Charities, St. Anne Home and Retirement Community, Franciscan Alliance, Specialized Physicians of Illinois and Our Sunday Visitor.

“These are tumultuous times in that we ask prayers from all parties involved that you know God give us some clarity and some good judgment coming from the bench,” reportedly said Sean McBride, staff director of communications for the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend.
