A major Supreme Court decision could be right around the corner. Americans across the nation are shocked — this would finally put a hot-button issue to rest.
Six years ago, the Little Sisters of the Poor began their legal battle against Obamacare’s contraceptive mandate. The Catholic charity eventually prevailed, but now liberal states are pulling them back into court.
California and Pennsylvania, in particular, want to force the Little Sisters to provide what’s known as the “week-after” pill, among other services, as part of their healthcare plans — thereby violating their conscience and mission.
Mark Rienzi, the president of Becket Fund, called this effort by liberal states “nonsensical.” His religious liberty group has taken up for the Little Sisters and will fight their battle all the way to the Supreme Court.
After President Trump took office, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services issued an exemption from the mandate for religious non-profits, and this is yet another reason why Rienzi is involved.
He said, “These states have not been able to identify a single person who would lose contraceptive coverage under the new HHS rule, but they won’t rest until Catholic nuns are forced to pay for contraceptives.”
