Federal appeals court rules against Catholic business owners in HHS mandate case

Catholic World News - September 19, 2013

The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals has declined to halt the implementation of the HHS mandate against Autocam Corp. and Autocam Medical, two for-profit companies that are owned by Catholics.

The Christian Science Monitor reported that two federal appellate courts have ruled in favor of the mandate, while one has ruled against it--thus increasing the likelihood that the Supreme Court will rule on the mandate's constitutionality.

    We must have two Constitutions that the federal judges refer to in reaching these conflicting decisions.
