USCCB offers praise for litigants challenging HHS mandate

Catholic World News - April 09, 2013

Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore, the chairman of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Ad Hoc Committee for Religious Liberty, has issued a statement praising those who have filed suit against the HHS mandate.

“I would like to express solidarity with these bishops, as well as the diocesan and other Catholic entities that have joined them as they pursue their lawsuits,” he said in an April 8 statement. “Their goal is nothing less than securing the freedom of the Church to continue to obey the Lord’s command—and, in turn, to serve the common good—by providing charitable ministries in health care, education, and service to the poor, all without compromising Catholic beliefs.”

Archbishop Lori also expressed “deep gratitude to the scores of people and organizations—from various denominations and walks of life—who have challenged the HHS mandate in federal courts around our country over the last year. We continue to pray for the success of all of these lawsuits.
