Pennsylvania diocese wins federal injunction against contraceptive mandate

Catholic World News - August 21, 2014

The Diocese of Greensburg, Pennsylvania, has won a federal court injunction against the enforcement of the contraceptive mandate in the federal health-care reform program.

Federal Judge Arthur Schwab, who had granted a temporary injunction in June, ruled that the federal mandate imposes an unnecessary burden on the religious freedom of the diocese. He wrote in his opinion that “the public interest is also best served if the Diocese (non-profit, affiliated/related organizations) can continue to provide needed educational and social services without the threat of substantial fines for non-compliance with the contraceptive mandate as imposed upon them.”
