Below are excerpts.  Read the entire article and watch a video at CBN News.

The Catholic charity was founded nearly 180 years ago to "offer the neediest elderly of every race and religion a home where they will be welcomed as Christ."

"The government cannot force believers to choose between following their faith and following the law," said Fr. Frank Pavone, a Roman Catholic priest and the national director of the group Priests for Life. The group is also a plaintiff in the case before the Supreme Court.

"This accommodation is not an 'opt-out.' Rather, it is a hijacking of the mechanism of our insurance plans to further the immoral goal of expanding access to abortion-inducing drugs and other objectionable services," Pavone continued.
