US bishops continue to speak out against contraceptive mandate
January 31, 2012
More than 100 American bishops have denounced the Obama administration's decision to require coverage of contraceptives in all health-care plans, with no exemption for Catholic institutions.
Thomas Peters of CatholicVote.org has compiled a list of the bishops who have spoken out, with links to most of their statements.
(Because bishops are still adding their statement to the growing list, the number in the headline above is probably already outdated.)

One can hope that the bishops will get Obama to pull back. Still, the bishops denounced Notre Dame for giving a platform to Obama, and neither Notre Dame nor Obama is much the worse for it.
