Little Sisters of the Poor file class-action lawsuit against HHS mandate

Catholic World News - September 26, 2013

The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty has announced that it is filing the first class-action lawsuit against the HHS mandate on behalf of the Little Sisters of the Poor.

“Like all of the Little Sisters, I have vowed to God and the Roman Catholic Church that I will treat all life as valuable, and I have dedicated my life to that work,” said Sister Loraine Marie, a provincial superior. “We cannot violate our vows by participating in the government’s program to provide access to abortion inducing drugs.”
