Court bars enforcement of HHS mandate against nursing-facility owner
September 12, 2013
A US district court judge in Colorado has temporarily blocked enforcement of the HHS mandate against assisted-living centers and nursing homes owned by Stephen Briscoe, an evangelical Protestant, according to a LifeNews.com report.
Judge Wiley Young Daniel, a Clinton appointee, made clear that his order extended only to “four objectionable FDA approved methods” of contraception to which Briscoe objects because of their potential abortifacient effect.
