Dozens of Catholic Organizations Sue to Fight ObamaCare Mandate

CNS News reports:

The Archdiocese of New York, headed by Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the Archdiocese of Washington, D.C., headed by Cardinal Donald Wuerl, the University of Notre Dame, and 40 other Catholic dioceses and organizations around the country announced on Monday that they are suing the Obama administration for violating their freedom of religion, which is guaranteed by the First Amendment to the Constitution.

The dioceses and organizations, in different combinations, are filing 12 different lawsuits filed in federal courts around the country.

The Archdiocese of Washington, D.C. has established a special explain its lawsuit and present news and developments concerning it.

Father Dolan has a brief statement on the lawsuit, at NRO. Franciscan University, the school that dropped its student health plan last week due directly to the mandate, is also suing.

I'm Protestant, but I support the Catholics' lawsuits against the ObamaCare abortifacient wholeheartedly and without reservation. That mandate is one of many Obama administration overreaches that cannot be allowed to stand. In fact, the mandate stems from ObamaCare, which also cannot be allowed to stand.
