Federal agency charges Catholic school with bias for offering no contraceptive coverage
August 10, 2009
A Catholic college in North Carolina has been found guilty of discrimination by a federal agency because the school does not include contraceptive coverage in its health-care plan for staff members. Belmont Abbey removed coverage of abortion, contraception, and sterilization from its health-care package in 2007, upon discovering that the coverage had accidentally been included. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission said that the change was a form of discrimination against women.
