Catholic colleges on defensive against contraceptive ideology

CWN - October 21, 2011

Patrick J. Reilly, the president of the Cardinal Newman Society, writes in the Washington Times about the drive by proponents of abortion and contraception--fully supported by the Obama administration--to force Catholic colleges to provide contraceptive coverage in student health-care plans.

Reilly notes the irony in the claim (by Frances Kissling, founder of Catholics for Choice) that Catholic colleges are "intolerant" when they try to maintain their religious identity, and are "politicizing" the issue by resisting an ideological campaign.
